The Thickness Paradigm: How the Roofing Membrane Industry Got It Backwards

发布的 史蒂夫Kuhel 2020年9月14日12:30:01

Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic.

——亚瑟·C爵士. 克拉克

The first computers were so large that warehouses were needed to store them. Car phones (yes there were car phones) were larger than the l和line in someone’s home. Winter jackets were once so awkwardly large that skiers would rather freeze than wreck on the slopes. And as late as the early 2000s, “advanced” hard drives in PCs were larger than iPhones today.

但在2020年的今天, a nominal 36-mil ELVALOY™ KEE Membrane introduced in 1979 is higher performing 和 lasts longer than even the newest 和 thicker 60-mil, 80-mil or even 90-mil PVC’s or TPO’s in the harshest rooftop environments.

In most cases, technology evolves over time. 在大多数行业, that evolution of products is driven by being economical around the space the product takes up … not value-engineering the product itself. The adage is: Because it is better, we made it thinner. It’s the 自然 evolution of technology. But not in commercial roofing, 和 there is a reason the best product (和 subsequently the thinnest) was developed in 1977 和 introduced in 1979 as mg官方电子平台.

And this is the paradigm battle of today.
