Why use PVC products by GAF?

Short for polyvinyl chloride, PVC is a single-ply roofing membrane with excellent performance. EverGuard® PVC offers increased protection against chemicals1 and fire performance compared to other single ply roofing technologies, excellent seam strength, long-term weathering and UV resistance. Guarantees are available up to 30 years for qualified systems2

The benefits of PVC

  • High flexibility, which is great for difficult contours and curves.
  • Increased protection against chemicals compared to other single ply
  • Excellent seam strength: Heat-welded seams provide greater seam strength compared to taped seams
  • Excellent long-term weathering and UV resistance
  • Enhanced fire protection is exhibited when tested in accordance with Class A E108, where specific EverGuard PVC roofing assemblies demonstrated the capability to extinguish even when the flame source remains applied to the assembly.
  • Potential cooling costs3 and urban heat island effect reductions, thanks to a highly reflective and emissive white surface (white membranes only)
  • Easy to install when used with our complete line of pre-fabricated accessories, 10' (3.05 m) wide sheets and quick adhesive options
  • Guarantees are available up to 30 years for qualified systems2

KEE (Ketone Ethylene Ester, aka Dow ELVALOY KEE) is a highly flexible polymer used as a plasticizer. Unlike the liquid plasticizers used in traditional PVC, KEE is a solid. PVC KEE membranes can help resist dirt pickup and mold/mildew, helping to keep the roof clean and reflective. PVC KEE is often specified in applications that call for increased protection against chemicals such as grease, animal fats, and jet fuel1.
