PVC System benefits

Easy to Install, New or Retrofit Roof

Mule-Hide PVC Roofing Systems install quickly in one pass with a small, trained
crew. All the accessories you need to complete roof details around edges and
penetrations are also available.

Energy Efficient Roof

White surfaces have been shown to reflect up to 78% of the sun’s rays to reduce air-conditioning costs. The superb reflectivity of white PVC even reduces the heat build-up under the membrane. PVC white membrane adds to the aesthetics of the building while increasing energy efficiency.

Flexibility

The membrane remains flexible in hot and cold temperatures so it will not split or crack. PVC can handle the desert sun, sand, arctic freezes, and torrential downpours.

The Best Lifecycle

PVC provides excellent resistance to fire, UV, airborne bacteria, and industrial pollutants such as air conditioning coolants. Reinforced membrane is engineered to remain dimensionally stable over time.

Lightweight yet Strong System

Weighing less than 1 lb. per square foot makes it ideal for new construction
and retrofit installations without adding excessive weight to the roof deck.
Stands up to repeated exposure to severe climates, high winds, building
movement, and routine rooftop traffic.

Heat-Welded Seam Strength

Mule-Hide PVC roofs use a heat-welding process that fuses the membrane seams to form a permanent, watertight seal. Superior seam strength provides greater wind uplift resistance.

Code Compliance

UL and FM listed assemblies are available upon request.


PVC Product Information

PVC KEE HP

Mule-Hide PVC KEE HP membranes are manufactured with DuPont™ Elvaloy® KEE HP polymer, which requires less plasticizers to make the membrane permanently flexible in addition to all the benefits of Mule-Hide PVC. Additionally, KEE HP provides the following advantages over standard PVC and standard KEE:

  • Reduces plasticizer migration to maintain membrane integrity
  • Increases weldability by 51% over standard KEE
  • Improved low temperature flexibility (-51°F vs. -40°F)
  • Provides greater chemical resistance for projects such as restaurants, laboratories, factories, etc.
  • Improves aesthetics by resisting dirt pick up

PVC

Specially designed with weft-inserted polyester knit fabric. Even when punctured, the fabric is engineered to “rope up” and resists tearing for superior durability with excellent abrasion and puncture resistance.

  • Weighs less than 1lb. per sq. ft. yet highly resistant to wind uplift
  • Resistant to fire & fungus, ozone & UV
  • Can be installed during winter months
  • Ideal for new construction and reroofing
  • Reinforced membrane easily handles building thermal expansion & contraction
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM performance standards

Warranty Program

Mule-Hide offers an extensive warranty program with several options for commercial projects, including Membrane Warranties, Standard System Warranties and Premium System Warranties.

A Mule-Hide representative inspects all commercial projects for which a Standard System Warranty or a Premium System Warranty is requested prior to the issuance of the warranty. To be eligible for a System Warranty (either Standard or Premium), the installing contractor must be a Mule-Hide Warranty Eligible contractor.

Mule-Hide also offers a selection of Membrane Warranties that are available for residential (single family dwelling) projects.
