Leadax is a non-toxic, fully sustainable lead-alternative flashing, which contains no heavy metals, unlike alternative water-resistant materials.

To help reduce wastage, this product is manufactured from a byproduct of laminated glass  production.

It is available in longer strips than traditional lead. This allows for less overlap, therefore requiring less materials.

Independent tests show Cromar Leadax as having the same waterproof properties as traditional lead.Even in the most extreme weather conditions, there are no problems with processing this product by hand. It is available in longer roll lengths and widths on request, with a short waiting time. Also, unlike other lead-alternative products, this product will leave absolutely no marks on roof tiles and is guaranteed to last 25 years!

This product is available in 6m rolls in:
150mm, 250mm, 300mm, 450mm, 600mm

Also available from this collection:
Lap Sealants (310ml)
