Each OlyBond500 canister set is self-contained, and comes with a 25-foot application hose, gun assembly, six mix tips, three extension tubes as well as a disposable wrench for securing the hoses to the canisters. The unique applicator “gun” includes a locking trigger designed to prevent accidental adhesive discharges on the roof. The 17-inch long extension tubes enable contractors to stand upright during application for better ergonomics and less fatigue.
“On almost a daily basis we’re hearing from contractors from across the country that OlyBond500 Canisters provide a highly labor efficient method of installing insulation adhesives,” said Adam Cincotta, adhesives business unit leader for OMG Roofing Products. “They love the fact that these systems do not require any extra or specialized equipment, rooftop power or highly skilled labor. Just connect the hoses and go!”
When compared to other canister based low-rise foaming adhesives, OlyBond500 Canisters can provide up to 20 percent more coverage and up to 35 squares per set, depending on the conditions and insulation used, according to the manufacturer. In addition, OlyBond500 Canisters enable users to spatter the adhesive for use with fleece backed membranes.
“In addition to productivity gains, canisters do not require highly skilled applicators, so contractors can assign skilled labors to work on other things rather than applying adhesive,” said Cincotta. “I expect to see more contractors adopt this strategy as the labor shortage continues.”
