The adhesive allows Redland’s lead-free Rapid Flashing product to be installed on both tiled and metal roofs even when the roof is wet.
Rapid Flashing is supplied with integrated butyl strips that bond the flashing to the roof. Up until the introduction of M-Glue, Rapid Flashing was not recommended for use on metal roofs and it could only be applied in dry conditions. Now though, with the introduction of the new adhesive, this popular product can be used on both types of roofs regardless of the weather.
The fact that M-Glue provides such weathertight adhesion makes Rapid Flashing an equally relevant choice for domestic, commercial and industrial buildings. The introduction of the adhesive means Rapid Flashing can now be used around abutments, outlets and penetrations on metal roofing systems.
M-Glue can also be used with Redland’s Uni-Vent Rapid Ridge/Hip, Dry Hip, Rapid Hip and Rapid Vented Ridge dry fix systems where it is applied to the rollable membrane, allowing fixing work to continue in the wet weather.
The adhesive has been extensively tested in Redland’s Technical Centre in Germany to ensure it provides secure performance in the harshest of 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.
