A new TPO roofing system aims to cut down on the cost and bother of cleaning the roof surface after installation by providing a protective film that can be peeled away at the finish of the job.

Mule-Hide TPO with CLEAN Film, from Mule-Hide Products (Beloit, WI), is touted as a thermoplastic olefin system that does not need to be washed down once installation is complete. The "CLEAN Film" technology is a gray film layer on top of the TPO surface that can be left in place, protecting the surface during construction, according to the company.

Crew removing CLEAN Film

“Stress-free, splinter-free removal” is ensured within 90 days after installation.

The film will stay in place through any weather while the job is being completed, the company says, noting that “stress-free, splinter-free removal” is ensured within 90 days after installation. The film comes in 5-foot-wide sheets, according to product details.

Mule-Hide suggests using the product in applications where water is not available onsite or conservation measures make washing the TPO surface impossible.

Kate Baumann, director of marketing and procurement for Mule-Hide Products Co, adds: “Pressure washing a TPO roof typically costs between $0.15 and $0.75 per square foot, and eliminating this step can save busy crews at least a day of labor.”
