Look up Flexion in the dictionary and you will ﬁnd that it refers to the act of ﬂexing or bending. That's exactly what Conklin’s newest rooﬁng system is designed to do. Conklin's Flexion provides a tough, yet extremely ﬂexible, 50-mil barrier between you and the elements. The Flexion System’s advanced Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) thermoplastic formulation has been reinforced with Dupont Elvaloy® and a 1000-denier, low-wicking fabric, providing superior strength, stability and ﬂexibility over the long haul. In addition, Flexion features natural ﬁre resistance, easy maintenance and favorable life cycle costing. Combine all these built-in features with years of proven performance and excellent sales support from Conklin and you have an investment with unsurpassed cost-effectiveness. With Flexion, you're protected against the worst Mother Nature can dish out.
Flexion’s thermoplastic formulation allows the seams to be heat welded. In addition, maintenance and repair can be done with relative ease because seams can be heated without special cleaners or adhesives. Building owners can be conﬁdent in the integrity of this protective barrier because these thermoplastic seams are actually stronger than the parent product, assuring a tough, durable and waterproof life. Themroplastic characteristics also mean that the membrane will remain ﬂexible and easy to work with, even in cooler temperatures and climates. Tough, durable, and ﬂexible—what else could you want?
There is more. Building owners will be pleased to leam that the Flexion System features favorable life cycle costing, a concept foreign to traditional black rooﬁng products available on the market. Flexion’s highly reﬂective surface reﬂects away 85 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, keeping the roof cooler. And, a cooler roof means a cooler work or living space below. In fact, a “cool roof’ membrane can do something dark surfaced rooﬁng could never do—pay for itself in energy savings in an average of four to seven years!
And, while you’re busy saving money, the ENERGY STAR rated roof membrane is helping the environment by reducing the effects of urban heat islands, reducing workloads in air conditioning units and, thus, requiring less energy demand on local power producers. Now who said you couldn’t save money and do something positive for the environment — all at the same time?
We look at a roof as a long-term investment, not just another expense. When you look at life-cycle costs, the Conklin Flexion single-ply system is a proven and economical solution to your rooﬁng needs. Our systems require less maintenance that other types of roofs. They last longer.
Conklin’s light-colored rooﬁng systems have eamed the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR designation for keeping structures cool while doing an outstanding job of protecting against leaks. Highly reﬂective roof surfaces reduce surrounding temperatures and extend the life of the roof by years. Thousands of Conklin rooﬁng customers can attest to lower air-conditioning bills and less wear and tear on their cooling systems.
