Innovative induction welding system
Best Materials is proud to partner with SFS on the isoweld® system so you can achieve faster, better and lower cost TPO/PVC Roofing system installations. Mechanically fastened single ply roofs have been the established means of providing waterproofing for single ply flat roof construction for many decades. From the very start, SFS Intec took the lead role in the development of mechanically fastened solutions and this innovative approach continues today with the new, revolutionary SFS Intec isoweld field fastening system. This offers a user-friendly, fast, efficient and approved system for the attachment of PVC and TPO single ply membrane systems.
The isoweld field fastening system uses induction technology and offers a non-penetrating solution. Secure attachment is achieved through the welding of the membrane to a dedicated SFS Intec stress plate.
Using the Isoweld induction welding system save you 20-40% on most projects. Large material and labor savings result from using 30-40% less fasteners and 30-40% fewer seam welds. The induction welded plates with #15 screws allows better screw patterns which meet all the FM uplift requirements while ensuring a more reliable system having few surface penetrations.

How to operate the isoweld Induction Tool
The key component of the isoweld system is the isoweld 3000 induction tool which was developed in partnership with engineering induction specialists. The system has been extensively tested both in laboratory and site conditions. The isoweld 3000 comes complete with the following essential features:
Start button to activate the induction process
Height adjustable handle for ergonomic working
Simple to use and user friendly display, including a number counter of welded points achieved
Membrane compatible wheels allow for easy maneuverability
Inductor dummy for stabilization and built-in temperature sensor allowing automatic adjustment of the welding parameters relative to external site temperature
Specially developed inductor with search and control function. This ensures that the inductor is located correctly over the plate prior to welding.
Built-in compensation for variation of power supply
Hand inductor for detailed work on parapet walls and narrow roof areas, e.g. around roof lights, openings, etc.
These features offer users perfect welding quality, security and user friendly operation.
