Application

Infra-Flash™ can be used as a flashing for roof ridges, edges and chimneys, the product is compatible with most building materials, metals and flexible or hard plastics.

Preparing the Surface

The user should check the compatibility of the product with the surface in terms of adhesion and chemical compatibility over the application temperature range. The surface should be clean, dry, smooth and dust-free.

Installation Guidelines

Prepare the surface and proceed as follows:

  • Choose the most suitable width and metal finish of the Infra-Flash™;
  • Unroll the tape until the desired length is reached;

  • The manufacturer disclaims all liability for product use and applications. No generic guarantees can be provided even if the instructions indicated on this sheet are followed.
  • Butyl sealants are plastic products. They possess no elastic recovery.
  • Do not use for permanent fixing or in load bearing applications in place of an adhesive or a mechanical fixing. Mechanical performance of butyl sealants decreases with temperature increase. Butyl adhesive are sensitive to solvents. It is advisable to check the chemical compatibility of the butyl adhesive with the support.

Storage

  • The quality and characteristics of materials remain unaltered for a long time. It is however best to use the product within 12 months.
