The reinforced membrane of Sure-Flex PVC is the thermoplastic membrane welded by hot air on the basis of polyvinylchloride.
Membranes of PVC possess the longest history of application from all thermoplastic membranes. The first cases of use of membranes of PVC as roofing material are dated the beginning of the 60th years of the last century.
The vinyl membrane or membrane of PVC is the most known of thermoplastic membranes. The term "thermoplasticity" says that at sufficient heating material possesses property of transition from firm to a semisolid state at which adjacent sheets or cloths of a membrane cook together and then harden when cooling, forming a continuous cloth. To production of welding hot air applies the special manual or automatic electric equipment giving hot air to the area of a seam, softening a membrane surface. The manual or built-in prikatochny roller presses a seam overlap. In process of removal of the welding machine the welded seam cools down to ambient temperature, forming a tight adjunction.
Despite significant growth in the market of membranes of TPO, use of membranes of PVC does not lose relevance, and now the share of membranes of PVC makes more than 10% of the total amount of the roofing materials used by roofing contractors.
