Roof fixings.

Description

Seamsil 400 roof fixing encapsulation system is designed to be a temporary repair solution to the problem of corrosion at roof fixings with a 12-month guarantee.

A silicone based remedial treatment formulated specifically to arrest the adverse effects of rust and chemical corrosion, industrial pollution and is particularly effective in marine/ coastal environments.

Installed by Sharmans network of Approved Contractors, all project works are inspected and certified to exacting quality standards.

The system includes:

  • Seamsil sealant: The Seamsil sealant is gun-applied around the base of the fixing, forming a complete bridged seal and tooled off to a neat edge.
  • Seamsil base coat: Whilst the Seamsil sealant is still wet, liberally apply Seamsil base coat by brush to encapsulate and visually obscure the complete fixing detail, taking the coating onto the roof sheet by around 25 mm. Allow to cure.

Features and benefits:

  • Weather and ultraviolet (UV) resistant.
  • Proven corrosion resistance.
  • Encapsulates the damaged area to restrict further deterioration.
  • Water repellent seal.
  • Primerless adhesion.
  • Remains tough and flexible, and is designed to withstand normal surface movement, ensuring continued optimum performance even in aggressive environments.
  • Long life protection in elasticity and encapsulation.
  • Silicone systems do not degrade by chalking and do not have self-cleaning properties.

Applications:
