With the advance of wide membranes, flutter has become a greater concern to building owners and contractors alike. The RhinoBond System from OMG Roofing Products provides a non-penetrating fastening solution that more evenly distributes the wind load.
RhinoBond is an alternative insulation and membrane attachment system for TPO and PVC membranes. This all-in-one system uses the same fastener and plate to secure the membrane and the insulation to the deck without penetrating the roofing material. The result is a Factory Mutual-approved system that does not create any point of entry for moisture, requires fewer fasteners, fewer seams and provides superior wind uplift performance.
Revolutionary Welding Tool
RhinoBond is an alternative fastening method for TPO and PVC. With this system, one fastener secures the insulation and the membrane. The roof cover is then welded to the plates in a grid pattern across the roof using the RhinoBond induction welding tool. The result is a Factory Mutual approved system that uses fewer fasteners and provides superior wind performance.
The RhinoBond Tool
The RhinoBond tool is an electromagnetic induction welder based on patented SINCH ® technology. The tool comes with a set of magnetic cooling clamps, and is designed for use with specially coated plates. RhinoBond tools are easy to use and height adjustable. An LED display provides detailed information including start-up, ready, energy level, number of plates welded/remaining, and cycles to date. Error messages notify operator of high or low voltage conditions and if no plate is found.
