TPO Rubber Roofing

I ordered a new piece if TPO for a roof repair I am working on, when it arrived today I was surprised that it has black backing like EPDM and it is has a slick finish not orange peeled in texture like my old TPO roofing. The reason I am posting this is not all TPO is white backing, from what I have researched the patent was up on the original patent in 2011 and since with new suppliers TPO roofing has changed some .

How large is the damaged portion of the roof. If is not very large get some Eternabond to repair it.

Some TPO roofing has a felt liner on the back.

Yes, the older TPO roofing is felt backing, they stopped making it said it held moisture, so if there was a leak even though the leak was repaired the roof was hard to dry out, because of the felt.

I have felt backing TPO on my roof, the new piece I replaced is not, but the rest of the roof seems stable, all the damage on the end I repaired was caused by leaking skylight and vent not being maintained. I took out skylight as can be seen in the picture, it has been a job but getting closer to being finished.

007matman, I bought an RV with roof damage caused by leaky skylight and end cap, it has been an adventure, lol, but it's slowly getting repaired.

Eternabond on seams, if any of you have mastered Eternabond placement I commend you, it's not as easy as it looks. I am a perfectionist, but it's not perfect, lol. I did figure out if you get off line, stop, cut it and lap back about 6 inches and straighten out your line and continue.
