OlyBond500 Green from OMG has the same approval ratings as the company’s OlyBond500 but is made with a plant-based formula that uses renewable resources instead of petroleum-based ones. The fast-acting adhesive has ultralow VOCs (less than 5g/L) and is compatible with common types of insulation and roof decks, such as lightweight structural concrete, poured-in-place structural concrete, precast concrete, gypsum, cementitious wood fiber, steel (with approved cross section), and wood. It can be used in new and retrofit roofing projects as well as installations that require multiple insulation layers. It is available in 5-gallon Bag-in-Box sets and in 1,500mL SpotShot cartridges. olybond500green.com
