The new Mule-Hide TPO with CLEAN Film from Mule-Hide Products Co. is designed to assist workers in leaving a clean TPO roofing surface once the job is complete. The CLEAN Film protects the roof membrane during installation and then is easily removed, revealing a roof ready for final inspection. No cleaning is required and there is no loss of initial solar reflectivity caused by dirt and scuffs that have accumulated during installation.
Mule-Hide TPO with CLEAN Film can be used in recover, reroof, and new construction jobs. It is a solution when a reliable water source is unavailable, or when water conservation or water containment/runoff regulations make it impractical to clean the roof with water.
The durable film does not shift and will withstand intense heat, rain, wind, and exposure to ultraviolet radiation without deteriorating. Measuring 5′ wide, each sheet can be pulled up by a single crew member, with stress-free, splinter-free removal ensured for 90 days after installation.
The CLEAN Film’s cool gray color also reduces the glare that can make working with white TPO membranes difficult on sunny days. It also enables moisture to evaporate more quickly, enhancing crew safety.
Notes Kate Baumann, director of marketing and procurement for Mule-Hide Products Co., “Pressure washing a TPO roof typically costs between $0.15 and $0.75 per square foot, and eliminating this step can save busy crews at least a day of labor.”
