Lead free flashing is a modern day alternative to lead. This can be used in areas where traditional lead flashing would be used such as chimney and abutment flashings, around rooflights and pitched valley linings.
Lead free flashing is made from a modified polyethylene compound with an integral aluminium mesh reinforcement, enabling the product to be worked and formed in the same way as lead. The product is faced with a fine grey mineral.
Lead free flashing has many features and benefits that make it a popular choice for roofers when looking for a cost effective alternative that can be worked and form in the same way as lead.
