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.

Metal roofing for low-slope applications
TITE-LOC Panels from Petersen Aluminum combine structural panel performance with architectural aesthetics. TITE-LOC Panels are corrective-leveled to provide superior panel flatness. A factory-applied sealant bead gives additional weather resistance. TITE-LOC Panels require mechanical field seaming after installation. The panels have a concealed-fastener floating clip system designed to allow for thermal expansion/contraction. These panels require a minimum 1/2:12 roof slope and are a perfect solution for low-slope applications. For further details, call (800) PAC-CLAD (722-2523) or visit www.pac-clad.com.
