About This Program

PVC continues to be a highly specified low-slope membrane thanks to its proven track record and superior chemical and fire resistance. Given the complexity of building design and specifying the correct product for your job, this course will provide an outline of the PVC membrane landscape and help you navigate the terminologies and various product options that exist today. Learn about the many benefits of using a white reflective PVC roofing membrane, including saving energy and reducing the use of fossil fuels.

Session Takeaways

  • Learn the history of PVC and its benefits to the environment and building occupants.
  • Understand how PVC membranes fit within building codes for fire resistance and within industry energy programs promoting sustainability. Review studies on the material’s service life so the designer is more prepared to discuss PVC options with the building owner.
  • Learn how the characteristics of PVC roofing membranes can help prevent the spread of fire and how PVC membranes use less fossil fuels than other thermoplastics.
  • Learn how decisions about different roofing components, such as the thickness, scrim choice, and formula in the manufacturing of PVC roofing membranes can affect buildings and their occupants.
