TPO Direct Weld testing yields dramatic results

A test group of Canadian roofing contractors were supplied with TPO Direct Weld coated sheet-metal strips and instructed to perform a pull test to see how well the TPO bonded. EVERY strip passed the test! Menzies TPO Direct Weld coated products bond to the TPO membrane so well the membrane will separate at the scrim while the bottom layer of the membrane stays bonded to the coating.
