Firestone PVC XR is a flexible and durable thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride roofing membrane that is produced with a polyester weft-inserted reinforcement and a 5.5-ounce non-woven spunbonded polyester fleece backing. Thermoplastic membranes that include a reinforcement layer provide increased dimensional stability and strength.
Weft insertion strengthens the membrane and limits ripping after a puncture. It can also help make small repairs—when needed—easier and less expensive. Polyester backing helps improve adherence, mechanical fastening, and foundational strength.
While PVC roofing systems are generally ideal for many commercial building types, Firestone PVC XR is particularly suited for the refurbishment of existing roofs where the use of mechanical fixings is difficult or not allowed. The membrane's fleece backing can securely and directly adhere to the specified substrate.
Installation flexibility enables the roofing system to be adhered with Firestone PVC Water Based Bonding Adhesive, I.S.O Spray R, or Twin Jet foam adhesives. Firestone PVC XR membrane may also be mechanically attached with approved Firestone fasteners and HD Seam Plates.
● PVC Water Based Bonding Adhesive is designed to adhere Firestone PVC and Firestone PVC XR membranes and flashings to wood, metal, masonry, and other acceptable substrates.
● I.S.O. Spray R Adhesive is a two-component, low-rise polyurethane adhesive engineered to adhere fleece-backed Firestone PVC XR membranes to acceptable substrates.
● Twin Jet is a two-component, low-rise polyurethane adhesive applied in a bead pattern for the attachment of Firestone approved roof insulations. It may also be used in bead or spatter pattern for the attachment of Firestone PVC XR membrane to acceptable horizontal substrates per Firestone specifications.
The Firestone PVC XR System shares the same benefits as other Firestone PVC products. Firestone PVC roofing membranes are designed to be non-flammable and stand up to constant assault from impacts, punctures, chemicals, biological materials, and unrelenting UV.
Firestone PVC is a reflective, cool roofing solution that supports a building's energy efficiency and provides long term weatherability. The Firestone PVC XR System also carries standard industry approvals like Factory Mutual (FM).
