But they do provide an ideal market environment for Redland to introduce its Rapid Flashing M-Glue. This is a new adhesive that allows the lead-free Rapid Flashing to be installed even when it’s wet.
The successful Rapid Flashing product is supplied with integrated butyl strips that bond the flashing to the roof tiles, but the tiles need to be dry to achieve the most secure fix. When it’s raining or the roof is saturated after prolonged wet weather, the use of M-Glue along the fixing edge will provide complete adhesion and a weathertight seal.
In addition, M-Glue allows Rapid Flashing to be used directly onto metal roofs where its edge sealing characteristics ensure a weathertight finish.
M-Glue can also be used with Redland’s Uni-Vent Rapid Ridge/Hip, Dry Hip and Rapid Hip dry fix systems where it is applied to the rollable membrane – allowing fixing work to continue in wet weather.
The new adhesive is an innovation from Monier Group and has been exhaustively tested in the Technical Centre in Germany to ensure it provides secure performance in the harshest weather conditions.
M Glue will be available from all merchants as part of the Rapid Flashing range and can be purchased separately in individual 290ml tubes for use with a standard caulking gun.
