VersiFlex PVC TPO Roofing:
Specifically Designed for Long-term Performance
VersiFlex PVC is specifically designed for long-term performance and is highly resistant to fire and chemicals including acids, bases, restaurant oils and grease.
Sustainability and environmental conservation are two of the top priorities in today’s construction industry. Using building materials with long life expectancy is one of the best ways to achieve long-term sustainability, and EPDM is unmatched when it comes to long-term service life. EPDM roofs have the lowest global warming potential, smog impact, and acid rain impact when compared to other commonly used commercial roofing systems, and at the end of its service life, EPDM can be recycled. More than 50 years of real-world experience has proven that EPDM roof systems are a reliable and sustainable option for almost any roofing project.
Energy Efficiency of VersiFlex PVC TPO Roofing
EPDM is available in both white and black membranes for different geographic climates.
- White EPDM saves energy by reducing air conditioning usage…a major benefit in southern climates
- Black EPDM saves energy by reducing heating usage… a major benefit in central and northern climates
Ballasted EPDM roofing systems are easily upgraded to include stormwater retention components to help cities alleviate problems from excessive stormwater run-off.
Tranquil Living Space
Specially formulated EPDM Pond Liners are routinely used to create peaceful living spaces that are in harmony with nature.
FRS vs. Polyester Scrim Reinforcement
PVC membranes with polyester or fiberglass reinforcement have both been used with great success in roofing over the past 40 years. Due to its greater tensile strength, Polyester reinforced membrane can be used in either adhered or mechanically fastened systems, while fiberglass reinforced products are limited to adhered applications. Both reinforcements provide excellent dimensional stability, durability but only the polyester contributes to superior puncture and tear resistance.
Each detail of a VersiFlex PVC roofing system is meticulously addressed by Versico to ensure the long-term peace of mind customers crave. Due to the excellent long-term dependability of Versico’s VersiFlex PVC and KEE HP membranes, 5-30-year No Dollar Limit warranty coverage is available and can be supplemented with accidental puncture coverage.
Resistance to Migration
Low-grade liquid plasticizers of the past were problematic, migrating from the membrane over time and reducing flexibility. Elvaloy KEE HP is a solid plasticizer with the highest molecular weight of any Elvaloy—it does not migrate from the membrane, keeping it weldable and pliable throughout a roof system’s entire service life.
High Performance, Even Under Duress
Elvaloy KEE HP is a durable plasticizer that enhances a roof’s resistance to harmful chemicals and pollutants. It can handle the heavy-duty challenges of acid rain, harsh chemicals, industrial pollutants, oil, fats, and even jet fuel. These chemicals can extract liquid plasticizers out of standard PVC membranes, leading to premature degradation. Elvaloy-enhanced PVC membranes are more resistant to the effects of harsh chemicals, making them the ideal choice for rooftops exposed to the harshest environments.
Protection from the Elements
For proven durability against severe weather conditions, there’s nothing like PVC membrane enhanced with Elvaloy KEE HP. It remains flexible in the most extreme weather conditions and its remarkable toughness provides increased resistance to abrasion and tearing. KEE HP-enhanced PVC also provides enhanced protection against UV degradation.
Because it remains more flexible than traditional PVC plasticizers over time, Elvaloy KEE HP-enhanced roofing membranes are able to be re-welded with ease years after installation if repairs need to be made.
