Firestone meets FIFA in Brazil
Firestone have announced that 5 of the football stadiums in Brazil are covered with Firestone UltraPly™ TPO membrane.Firestone says in their press release "Firestone UltraPly™ TPO is a thermoplastic roofing membrane that is growing rapidly in the market and has many interesting aspects, both in terms of durability and installation."
Because of the curved shape of the stadium, and the speed at which the roof needed to be installed, Firestone UltraPly™ TPO was the obvious choice. It also includes reflective properties which help to cool the stadium interiors in hot weather.
Made from up to 100% recycled material millions of square feet of UltraPly TPO roofing systems have been installed all over the world – from the very cold conditions experienced in Canada to hot and humid South America.
The seams are very quick to seal – using hot air the upper and lower layers are fused offering an extremely strong bond that can be used in all weather conditions.
