Induction welding is a high performance, non-penetrating fastening solution for thermoplastic roof systems during cold weather construction. With over 2 Billion sq/ft of thermoplastic membrane installed to date, induction welding has become the mechanical attachment method of choice for many of the country’s leading commercial roofing contractors and building owners. In addition to the installation and performance benefits of fewer fasteners, fewer seams, and zero membrane penetrations; this method of attachment is suitable in ambient conditions ranging from 0-120 degrees F, allowing roofing projects to stay on track during cold weather months.
