SEAMSIL® has been specified and used to secure the long term performance of the roof at one of Royal Mail’s main UK retail outlets. The prestigious Birmingham Mail Centre takes the number of UK-wide mail facilities treated with SEAMSIL® to over two hundred.
It’s over 20 years since Delvemade invented its patented silicone external repair system, for cut edge corrosion on profiled plastisol/PVDF coated steel roof sheeting.
The system was developed from the outset with help from Itac, its parent company. With the co-operation of BSC (now Tata Steel), Delvemade devised an effective and long-term solution to a problem, which was affecting the metal roofs of many of its premises.
The problem was cut edge corrosion. It can be caused by a combination of poor installation techniques and on-site cutting plus attack from acid rain and pollutants, which are then retained as moisture in critical roof overlaps and gutter overhangs. This results in corrosion of the profiled steel roof sheets. If not treated quickly and effectively, the damage could lead to the need for partial or complete roof replacement.
The SEAMSIL® installation at Birmingham Mail Centre was undertaken by approved contractor Mayfair Refurbishments – a qualified applicator with extensive experience in the treatment of cut edge corrosion.
