Sheet lead is a soft, ductile and inert material. Manufactured by either milling (rolling) from cast slabs or direct casting from molten metal into a continuous sheet form, it is extremely versatile and can be used in a number of applications, including as a dampcourse in brickwork, sound proofing, barrier to low level radiation, lining of chemical tanks and most notably as roof flashing.When used in roof flashing, sheet lead's durability enables it to withstand years of exposure to the elements in all sorts of environments, giving timeless protection. Softness and ductility allow easy forming of sheet lead to suit all roof profiles and its weight ensures that it stays in place even in strong winds.
