BS Fixings, your trusted supplier of superior-quality, reliable construction solutions, proudly unveils the new Rooftec Lead Flashing Sealant in grey.

What is Lead Flashing Sealant?

Before we dive into the features of Rooftec’s product, we’re going to clarify what lead flashing sealant is for our readers who might be new to roofing. Lead flashing sealant is a unique adhesive used for sealing joints on roofs, specifically around areas where the roof meets the chimney or walls. It tends to be used in conjunction with lead flashing (hence its name), a thin, malleable sheet of lead or lead alloy that is used as a weatherproofing material along joints and transitions in roofs, walls, and other building materials. When you use these two materials together, they prevent water ingress, ensuring your structure remains watertight and immune to the unpredictable UK weather.

Why You Should Choose Rooftec’s Lead Flashing Sealant:

  • Highly Versatile: not only is this product used for roofing, but it is also suitable for a myriad of surfaces including metal, concrete, and some plastics.
  • Unmatched Durability: once applied, it offers supreme adherence and longevity, standing firm against corrosion and ageing. Whilst water might be your main concern, Rooftec’s lead flashing sealant is also resistant to UV radiation and will accommodate expansion and contraction, making it suitable for hotter climates too.
  • Waterproof Excellence: this product has top-tier waterproofing properties, offering unmatched protection against rain and moisture. It can be used on various materials, including brickwork, masonry, roofing, and chimney stacks.
  • Stylish Finish: the sleek grey colour not only blends seamlessly with various roof materials but also adds a touch of professionalism to the final appearance.
  • User Friendly: this sealant is easy to apply with a standard sealant gun, making it suitable for both professionals and first-time users.
