AGAWAM, Mass. — To extend the roofing season with OlyBond500 Canisters, OMG Roofing Products now offers Powerblanket® Foam Box Heaters and Powerblanket® Wraps.

Insulated Powerblanket Foam Box Heaters are 16-inches square and provides uniform heat of 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) to one carton containing an OlyBond500 Canister. Insulated Powerblanket Wraps measure 20- by 45-inches enabling complete single canister coverage and are pre-set to 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius). Both Wraps and Box Heaters are designed to maximize adhesive yield by minimizing waste of temperature sensitive insulation adhesives such as OlyBond500. All Powerblanket products operate on standard 120 V current and come with a 6-foot power cord.

“For proper application and performance, it is critical that the canister adhesive is stored and dispensed at about 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius),” said Jim Lavallee, OlyBond product manager for OMG Roofing Products. “This ensures that there’s adequate pressure in the tanks and that the viscosity of each part is maintained to keep the final mixture on-ratio. Powerblanket products do a great job in keeping OlyBond Canisters at the appropriate temperature for dispensing.” 

Heated Powerblanket Box Heaters and Wraps fit easily on OMG BeadPro Carts, and can also be put into wagons, wheelbarrows or other similar carts which are easily moved around on the roof.
