Stuttgart, 03.02.2016: During the Dach + Holz Exhibition in Stuttgart, the KÖSTER BAUCHEMIE AG was recognized by the IBU as a sustainable partner in construction for its roofing membranes. The certificate was awarded by Prof. Dr. Ing. Horst Bossenmayer, president of the IBU, to Managing Director, Dr. Dieter Köster.
In the future, tenders for sustainable projects can utilize information from KÖSTER TPO EPDs regarding the ecological footprint of TPO during the evaluation process of the roofing component and entire building. Unlike other roofing membranes, such as membranes from PVC, KÖSTER TPO membranes qualify for Gold, the highest certification status awarded by the IBU.
The excellent long term durability of KÖSTER TPO Membranes could be proven through a performance test after 14 years of weather exposure.
KÖSTER TPO Membranes are made of flexible polyolefin. A glass fiber mesh is embedded in the middle of the membrane to provide an especially high dimensional stability and resistance against perforation. It offers a high reliability and is characterized by a fast and economical installation. KÖSTER TPO Membranes are UV-stable, resistant to aging, microorganisms, and can be applied directly onto old bitumen membranes.
KÖSTER TPO F Membranes feature an additional polyester fleece backing for a full surface adhesion installation.
