Contact with Other Materials

Rolled lead sheet works in harmonious partnership with most building materials, however additional precautions may be required when using some types of materials to avoid any deleterious effect on lead sheet particularly in the presence of moisture.

It is important to check for compatibility when specifying or using certain types of the following materials:-

  • Timber
  • Underlay
  • Sealant
  • Adhesive
  • Concrete and Mortar
  • Other Metals

If in doubt, the Technical Department of the Lead Sheet Association will be pleased to advise further – telephone 01622 872432.
