GAF Announces New Additions to Advanced Protection TPO Product Line
WAYNE, N.J. — GAF announces two new additions to its EverGuard Extreme® Advanced Protection® TPO product line: 50 mil and 70 mil thicknesses. The addition of these new thicknesses will allow contractors to offer the next-generation performance advantages of EverGuard Extreme® TPO, but at prices that are competitive with “standard” 60 mil and 80 mil TPO. This combination of performance and price has never before been available in the roofing industry.
In 2012, GAF introduced EverGuard Extreme® TPO, a patent-pending, next-generation TPO roofing membrane in 60 mil and 80 mil thicknesses. Unlike standard TPO, EverGuard Extreme® Advanced Protection® TPO incorporates proprietary technology that resists the damaging effects of high heat and UV, resulting in a TPO membrane with next-generation weathering performance. EverGuard Extreme® can even meet the extremely demanding performance requirements of roofs that include building-integrated solar systems. These high-heat applications can literally “fry” standard TPO membranes after surprisingly short periods of use. EverGuard Extreme® Advanced Protection® TPO exceeds not only the weathering and heat-aging standards of D6878 but also all of the other critical performance standards, according to the company.
Now, with the introduction of new 50 mil and 70 mil thicknesses, contractors can offer their customers the performance advantages of EverGuard Extreme® Advanced Protection® TPO at prices that are extremely competitive with standard 60 mil and 80 mil TPO—and with equivalent guarantees (see EverGuard® Diamond Pledge™ NDL Roof Guarantee for complete coverage and restrictions).
“When we first introduced EverGuard Extreme® TPO, it was targeted at the solar and high-heat markets. But with the addition of our new 50 mil and 70 mil thicknesses at competitive pricing, the products can be used to replace standard 60 mil and 80 mil TPO in virtually any conventional TPO application,” stated Brian Impellizeri, marketing manager at GAF. “Why would anyone pass up the performance advantages of EverGuard Extreme® Advanced Protection® TPO, when they can get it for virtually the same price and guarantee coverage as standard TPO?”
