Dow Roofing Systems LLC, part of The Dow Chemical Company, is discontinuing the sale of TPO and PVC roofing membranes and accessories in North America, effective Jan. 31.

In a press release, the company said it plans to focus on its insulation and adhesive solutions, and will pursue “ongoing development of differentiated roofing innovations”.

The business, aligned with the Dow Building Solutions business unit, was formed after Dow’s acquisition of Stevens Roofing Systems in 2008.

 “The DRS product line represents a small percentage of our overall building-solutions business, and we are confident that we can better serve the roofing industry long term by refocusing our efforts on our core business portfolio,” said Scott Young, president and general manager of Dow Roofing Systems.

Products that will no longer be sold to the North America market include TIEMPO+ 2000 TPO membranes and accessories, VIENTO PVC membranes and accessories, and TERMICO polyisocyanurate insulation.
