Lead Free Flashing: Wakaflex®
Wakaflex® is a BBA-certified, lead-free flashing which is available in grey, black, terracotta and brown, to match most commonly used tiles and slates.
It provides the ideal solution in situations of potential metal theft as it has similar malleability to lead but can also be stretched in either direction and cut by knife, shears or scissors. Wakaflex is used for all types of roofing abutment work and can be formed without specialist tools, even around deeply profiled tiles.
Its high strength, self-adhesive Butylon® backing provides immediate weatherproofing protection and on laps the backing and facing effectively weld together to form a virtually unbreakable bond. With no susceptibility to thermal movement or cold working fatigue it can also be laid in long lengths without fixing clips.
