  • Elevate PVC KEE Membrane
  • Elevate PVC KEE XR Membrane
  • Elevate PVC Membrane
  • Elevate PVC XR Membrane

Product description

Elevate PVC is a flexible, thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) roofing membrane that is produced with a polyester, weft-inserted reinforcement. This heat-weldable PVC membrane is available in thicknesses of 1.27 mm (50 mil), 1.52 mm (60 mil), and 2.03 mm (80 mil) and is suitable for a variety of low-slope applications. The membrane comes in either 1.5 m (5 ft.) or 3 m (10 ft.) widths and 30.5 m (100 ft.) or 19.8 m (65 ft.) lengths for the 2.03 mm (80 mil) thickness.

Elevate PVC XR is the same membrane as the Elevate PVC with a 156 g (5.5 ounce) non-woven, spun-bonded, polyester fleece backing. Elevate PVC XR is available in thicknesses of 1.52 mm (60 mil) and 2.03 mm (80 mil). The membrane comes in either 1.9 m (76 in.) or 3 m (10 ft.) widths and either 27.4 m (90 ft.) or 19.8 m (65 ft.) lengths, depending on the thickness.

Elevate PVC KEE is a flexible, thermoplastic PVC roofing membrane produced with DuPontTM ElvaloyTM KEE and polyester, weft-inserted reinforcement. This heat-weldable PVC KEE membrane is available in thicknesses of 1.27 mm (50 mil), 1.52 mm (60 mil), and 2.03 mm (80 mil) and is suitable for a variety of low-slope applications. The membrane comes in either 1.5 m (5 ft.) or 3 m (10 ft.) widths and 30.5 m (100 ft.) or 24.4 m (80 ft.) lengths for the 2.03 mm (80 mil) thickness.

Elevate PVC KEE XR is same membrane as the Firestone PVC KEE with a 156 g (5.5 ounce) non-woven, spun-bonded, polyester fleece backing. Firestone PVC XR is available in thicknesses of 1.27 mm (50 mil), 1.52 mm (60 mil) and 2.03 mm (80 mil). The membrane comes in either 1.9 m (76 in.) or 3 m (10 ft.) widths and either 22.3 m (75 ft.), 27.4 m (90 ft.) or 30.5 m (100 ft.) lengths, depending on the thickness.

Wind uplift resistance of membrane roofing assemblies

The wind uplift resistance performance rating is based on CAN/CSA A123.21-14, "Dynamic Wind Uplift Resistance of Membrane-Roofing Systems."

The following membranes used in the roofing assembly achieved a factored dynamic wind uplift resistance of 1.795 kPa (37.5 PSF), when using the CAN/CSA-A123.21 test method 2 for Partially Attached Roofing System (PARS):

  • Elevate PVC
  • Elevate PVC KEE

For details on the roofing assembly, see Element test report No. 20-06-B0122-5.

The following membranes used in the roofing assembly achieved a factored dynamic wind uplift resistance of 1.795 kPa (37.5 PSF), when using the CAN/CSA-A123.21 test method 2 for PARS:
