Rapid Flashing, a lead-free, flexible adhesive flashing, can be used on concrete, clay and slate pitched roofs. With unrivalled speed and ease of installation, standard flashing details can be completed twice as quickly as with lead.
Free samples of Rapid Flashing are available for roofers to pick up from their local merchants to see its unique design and test how it sticks.
Rapid Flashing can be used for detailing around chimney stacks, dormers and abutments, with no need for special tools or welding. Rapid Flashing produces no staining or streaking and is easy to use and transport.
