OMG Roofing Products to Showcase New RhinoBond Foil Tool at BAU
AGAWAM, Mass. – OMG Roofing Products will be demonstrating its new RhinoBond Foil Tool, an induction welding system for securing single-ply commercial roofing membranes, at the BAU show in Munich, Jan. 16 - 21, Hall A3, Stand 112.
OMG’s new RhinoBond Foil Tool is specifically designed for use over foil face PIR insulation. The welding tool includes state-of-the art plate sensor technology to help users rapidly locate RhinoBond Plates installed under the roofing membrane, and assists with tool alignment for optimum bonding. A tone and a visual indicator light lets operators know when the weld cycle is complete.
The RhinoBond System is the world’s leading induction based technology used for installing commercial roofing systems. To date, more than 170 million m2 of commercial roofing membranes have been installed around the globe with RhinoBond, including more than 125 projects in Europe accounting for more than 3200,000 m2.
The company will also be looking for new distribution partners in targeted geographies throughout Europe during the show.
“As more roofing contractors have seen the simplicity, labor savings and superior roof performance benefits that the RhinoBond System can offer, we have had tremendous growth,” said Lennard Spirig, Europe market manager. ”With updated technology and expanded distribution, we expect accelerated acceptance of the RhinoBond System across in the region.”
RhinoBond is an innovative method for installing thermoplastic and soon will be available for certain clean EPDM membrane. The system consists of a stand-up induction welding tool and magnetic cooling clamps. Contractors install roofing insulation using fasteners and specially coated plates designed specifically for the type of membrane being installed – PVC, TPO or Clean EPDM. Each plate is then bonded to the roof membrane installed over the top with the RhinoBond plate welding tool. The result is a roofing system that can provide enhanced wind performance with fewer fasteners, fewer membrane seams and zero penetrations of the new membrane.
Currently the RhinoBond System conforms with CE requirements and approved for use in Europe by many of the leading roof system providers, including Bauder, Carlisle/Hertalan, Danosa, Fatra, FDT, Firestone, GAF, IcoPal, IKO, Renolit, Sika, Siplast, and Soprema/Flag.
