Code 3 Roll of Lead Flashing - 300mm x 3m
Milled Lead is the only lead flashing manufactured to BS EN 12588, the British Standard for lead and lead alloys. The production process ensures the product is consistent and has a similar thickness throughout the entire length of the roll. It achieves this by passing a lead slab continually through two hydraulic rollers until a specific thickness throughout has been produced. Hence the common name for the product rolled lead .
Code 3 lead is the thinnest lead roll available at 1.32mm in thickness, with a weight of 14.97kg/m2. It suitable for use on abutment soakers and is easy to work with due to it low melting point. The maximum length code 3 lead can be applied in is 1m, any longer than this and you are at risk of the product cracking and causing your flashings to fail.
