JM TPO Membrane

Johns Manville is widely recognised as one of the world's foremost suppliers of single ply roofing membrane, Allco has selected the JM TPO for their Cold Roof solution due to its superior UV and Ozone resistance and its impressive environmental credentials. It is a lightweight and cost effective solution that lends itself to most flat roof applications including commercial and residential projects. With warranties from 15-25 years.

Key Features
  • Wide and long rolls —JM comes in 3m x 30m rolls
  • Highest thickness-over-scrim in the roofing industry.  TPO attribute for top performance
  • Exceptional ozone resistance.  The JM TPO formulation was developed to maximise resistance to ozone degradation
  • Seam strength 50% higher over a wide temperature range. 
  • Highly engineered for tear strength and uplift resistance. JM TPO is strong and flexible, helped by the scrim orientation and thickness of our polyester reinforcement.
  • Thickness tolerances have over 50% less deviation than other major brands. JM measured 10' wide sheets from other brands at 105 data points across the width of the membranes. 
  • Outstanding climate resistance as measured by the Xenon Weatherometer. The ASTM test minimum standard is simulated exposure at 10,080 kJ/m2 . JM has maintained performance now to 19,800 kJ/m2 and continues to accumulate exposure well past the ASTM requirements.
