OMG Roofing Launches Webpage Designed To Provide System Resources

OMG Roofing Products of Agawam, Mass. has launched a new webpage designed to provide RhinoBond users with access to system resources that they may need while on the jobsite.

The web page, www.RhinoBondResources.com, includes access to the RhinoBond operating manual and the RhinoBond Best Practice tip sheet, both are provided in English and Spanish. In addition, six videos are accessible from the site, including three videos about the system, wind performance and use over standing seam metal roofs, and three “how to” videos covering start-up requirements, tool calibration and magnet rotation.

RhinoBond, designed for use with thermoplastic PVC and TPO roofing systems, uses induction welding technology to bond the membrane directly to coated plates that are used to secure the insulation to the deck, all without penetrating the roofing membrane. The result is a roofing system with wind performance that requires up to 50 percent fewer fasteners and plates and up to 30 percent fewer membrane seams to weld on the roof.

“Roofers have a challenge of keeping crew-members up-to-date when it comes to training and best practices,” said David Allor, RhinoBond product manager for OMG Roofing Products. “Therefore we’ve made the information available from anywhere by going to the website, or by scanning a QR Code that is displayed on a yellow sticker on the inside of the RhinoBond tool case.”

Roofing contractors who want to add yellow reminder stickers to the inside of their existing RhinoBond tool cases, should contact their local OMG Field Service Representative or order stickers directly at the website.
