Testing yields dramatic results

A test group of Canadian roofing contractors recently was supplied with a sheet-metal strip with TPO Direct Weld applied to it and instructed to do a pull test to see how well the TPO bonded. Every strip passed the test! Menzies Metal Products' TPO Direct Weld bonds to TPO membranes so well the membrane will separate at the scrim while the membrane's bottom layer stays bonded to the coating.
