In order to install Wakaflex Rapid Flashing in all weather conditions and to the highest standards of quality, Redland offers a selection of accessories that perfect complement the lead-alternative material.
Rapid Flashing M-Glue is an adhesive that allows lead-free Rapid Flashing to be installed even when the tiles are wet.
It can also be used with Redland’s Uni-Vent Rapid Ridge/Hip, Dry Hip and Rapid Hip dry fix systems where it is applied along the line of the butyl strip on the rollable membranes – allowing fixing work to continue even in wet weather.
M-Glue comes in easy to use 290ml tubes that fit into a standard caulking gun.
The adhesive is odourless, free of solvents and phtalates, fast curing and has a remarkable resistance to climatic influence.
Rapid Flashing Sealant has been specially formulated to work with Rapid Flashing making it adhere very well to the surfaces. This is different to other sealant on the market, which can be used with Rapid Flashing, but generally do not stick well to its surface.
It comes in a standard sized 310ml application tube that fits inside a standard caulking gun (available from any merchant or DIY store).
Material: UV resistant, bitumen-friendly synthetic rubber (silicone free)
Optimal Temp: +5°C to +40°C
Storage: Cool and dry place, protected from frost
The Butyl Roll is used with Rapid Flashing where additional adhesion between the flashing and the tiles is required.
Size: 20m x 20mm
