The Lead Free Alternative - IKO Flash Available from Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire


Application


IKOflash can be cut using a sharp knife and formed using the same methods as for traditional lead flashings If required, stainless steel nails can be used to fix IKOflash back to a structure.

Standard fixing clips can be used to secure IKOflash into a pointing gap, enabling the product to be secured firmly to allow dressing
down onto the roof covering.

To provide additional restraint in areas of high exposure, IKOpro Stickall elastomeric mastic should be applied in a continuous bead and pressed down to seal.


IKOpro Stickall can also be used to fill the pointing gap in brickwork and masonry, minimising any mortar cracking or water penetration and ensuring a flexible, long-lasting joint.


All overlaps in IKOflash must be sealed with a continuous bead of IKOpro Stickall.
