The successful Rapid Flashing is supplied with integrated butyl strips that bond the flashing to the roof tiles. M-Glue was originally developed to provide complete adhesion and a weathertight seal even in the rain.
The fact that M-Glue provides such effective edge sealing characteristics makes it an equally relevant choice for industrial metal and corrugated roof materials. Here it can be used to seal to top edge of a flashing installation which is most susceptible to water ingress. This development means that Rapid Flashing can now be used around abutments, outlets and penetrations on metal roofing systems.
M-Glue is 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 sealant gun.
