The Lead That Isn't Lead Iko Flash Available From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

With so much lead being stolen at the moment it makes sense to use IKO Flash the lead free flashing.

IKOflash is made from a modified polyethylene compound with an integral aluminium mesh rein­for­cement, enabling the product to be worked and formed in the same way as lead. The product is faced with a fine grey mineral.

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.
