Single-ply membrane roofing is an economical way to address low-slope roofing applications due to the ease of installation and long-term flexibility. Modern single-ply membrane roofing systems consist of two main categories: thermoset and thermoplastic. The thermoset membranes like EPDM (rubber similar to that found in automobile tires) are cured after heating into sheet form at the factory. Thermoplastic membranes consist of plastic polymers which can be re-softened upon heating, as is the case with the main types in use today, TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) membranes. Each type may be reinforced with polyester fabric or glass fiber matrix embedded in the sheet. Single-ply membrane roofing was first placed into use after advances in materials science after World War II.
As single-ply membranes have supplanted many built-up roofing (BUR) installations in market share, many years of applied service have contributed to the present state-of-the-art science involved in single-ply roofing membrane chemistry and design. The membranes of today are the fruit of decades learning to overcome the challenges presented by environmental conditions such as UV exposure, wind uplift, oxidation, and temperature effects upon a relatively thin single layer of waterproofing protection for the contents of a building. Modern single-ply membranes are in general an excellent choice for the facility owner or manager who wishes to protect a large, flat, rarely-traveled area at a reasonable cost.
