ProFlash can be cut using a sharp heavy duty knife or metal cutters and formed using the same methods as for traditional lead flashings. If required, stainless steel nails can be used to fix ProFlash back to a structure. Standard fixing clips can be used to secure ProFlash into a pointing gap, enabling the product to be secured firmly to allow dressing down onto the roof covering. To provide additional restraint in areas of high exposure, bituminous mastic should be applied in a continuous bead and pressed down to seal.
Bituminous mastic can also be used to fill the pointing gap in brickwork and masonry, minimising any mortar cracking or water penetration and ensuring a flexible, long-lasting joint.
All overlaps in ProFlash must be sealed with a continuous bead of bituminous mastic.
