Commercial single-ply membranes are factory-manufactured sheet membranes. They generally are categorized as either thermoplastic or thermoset. Thermoplastic materials can be repeatedly softened when heated and hardened when cooled. In commercial roofing, thermoset materials solidify, or "set", irreversibly after heating. Single ply membranes commonly are referred to by their chemical acronyms, such as ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM). Single-ply sheet membranes are produced using one of three manufacturing processes: calendering, extruding or spread coating. The membranes may contain reinforcement layers. Common reinforcements for single ply membranes include polyester fabrics or scrims, glass fiber, or a felt or fleece backing.
Single-ply membranes can be installed fully adhered, mechanically attached or held down with ballast. Most single-ply commercial roof systems do not receive surfacings.
In many instances, a combination of attachment methods are used to secure a commercial roof system. For instance, an insulation may be mechanically attached to the substrate with the roof membrane fully adhered to the insulation.
