I am not sure what TPO stands for but I tried to wax it with a fiberglass approved wax and it streaked it. I won't say it melted it but it did do "something" to it. I just wash it now.
From Wikipedia.......Thermoplastic PolyOlefin
(TPO) is a trade name that refers to polymer
/filler blends usually consisting of some fraction of PP (polypropylene
), PE (polyethylene
), BCPP (block copolymer polypropylene
), rubber, and a reinforcing filler. Common fillers include, though are not restricted to talc, fiberglass, carbon fiber, wollastonite
, and MOS (Metal Oxy Sulfate). Common rubbers include EPR (Ethylene propylene rubber
(EP-diene rubber), EO (ethylene-octene), EB (ethylene-butadiene), SEBS
(Styrene-ethylene-butadiene-styrene). Currently there is a great variety
of commercially available rubbers and BCPP's. They are produced using regioselective
catalysts known as metallocenes
. The metallocene catalyst becomes embedded in the polymer and cannot be recovered.
Now there's a mouthful !!
