Reduces onsite storage requirements: ‘multipurpose high-grab MCPU adhesive in a canister’
RoofBond (A1297) allows your contractor to reduce the number of different membrane adhesives they need to store onsite. It will secure fleece-backed membrane (PVC and TPO) for fieldwork, and is ideal for bonding up-stands to a range of vertical substrates and other detail work (attaching membrane to joints, drainage pipes, sky lights and aerators) due to its high-grab and two-way stick. RoofBond (A1297) is the only canister adhesive in the market that will securely bond non-backed PVC membrane to a wide range of roof substrates, including tissue and foil-faced insulation board for both field and detail applications. This ‘multipurpose adhesive in a canister’ also gives your contractor all of the benefits of a traditional MCPU: weatherproof bond, excellent temperature resistance (-30-150°C) and great aging properties.
Economical coverage rates: professional application, reduced wastage
Apollo understands that overall ‘onsite cost’ is a key concern to your contractor, especially given the current economic climate. RoofBond (A1297) has been developed with this in mind. It has an economical coverage rate; one canister will cover up to 100m². Wastage is also reduced due to the three-metre hose, which allows for professional and precise application.
Quick, simple and professional application: 2x faster application and faster cure
RoofBond (A1297) allows your contractor to minimise the time it takes to complete jobs. Although a two-way stick adhesive, RoofBond (A1297) is 2x faster to apply than a standard one-way-stick roller-applied adhesive. RoofBond (A1297) covers up to one metre square of membrane in as little as 40 seconds, whereas it takes 90 seconds with a standard roller-applied MCPU adhesive. It also cures much more quickly than a standard roller-applied MCPU adhesive; in as little as 30 minutes, in comparison to 90 minutes.
Aesthetically-pleasing results: non-foaming adhesive, smooth consistent finish
Your contractor’s reputation is not only reliant on ensuring a strong and secure bond. The quality and aesthetics of the roof are also important. RoofBond (A1297) is a non-foaming adhesive, which allows for aesthetically flat lamination of the membrane, without creasing and wrinkling. Its spray application ensures even coverage, further promoting a smooth consistent finish.
Minimises back pain: reduces bending and stooping due to 3m hose/applicator
Back pain is a common complaint of contractors, and it is often caused by bending and stooping to apply roller-applied or bead-applied adhesives. Such actions can cause labour-fatigue, which is not only incredibly uncomfortable and unpleasant for your contractor, but it can have a detrimental impact on their performance. Repetitive bending and stooping can also cause long-term back problems. RoofBond (A1297) eliminates repetitive bending and stooping because it is applied via a 3m hose/applicator, which allows your contractor to lay membrane quickly and safely. It is also simple to carry onsite due to the handles featured on the outer packaging.
