The quality of coatings on metal profile sheets has improved significantly in recent years. Nevertheless, the problems of delamination and deterioration of the coating presents an ever present risk to the integrity of roof structure and performance. Furthermore, the cut edge and overlapped joint remains especially vulnerable due to the effects of capillary action drawing Sulphur contaminated rainwater into the joint causing the double hazard of ‘topside’ and ‘reverse side’ corrosion.
The rate of breakdown of coatings is determined by location, orientation and design. Research has shown that the dominant factor for PVC type coatings is UV radiation and for thin Pvf2/polyester coatings, the corrosion of the zinc substrate through the permeability of the coating.
The result is an unsightly roof, scarred with lines of corrosion along the joints and random rust stains across the entire surface.
Why Sharmans Seamsil?
Seamsil metal protection systems are designed to provide effective long life solutions to the problems of corrosion at cut edges and overlap joints on all types of profiled metal roofs. Seamsil is a silicone based remedial treatment formulated specifically to arrest the adverse effects of rust and chemical corrosion, industrial pollution and is particularly effective in marine/coastal environments. Seamsil completely encapsulates the damaged lap joint area preventing further water ingress and therefore provides maximum protection against future reverse side corrosion.
Seamsil silicone systems have exceptional adhesion to cleaned and prepared surfaces and cure to provide a tough elastic seal, effectively encapsulating the damaged area to restrict further deterioration.
Seamsil uses GE Silicone technology with its proven long life, being unaffected by UV or extremes of weather and temperature.
Silicone systems have good elastic and flexibility properties to withstand normal surface movements. This ensures continued optimum performance even in the most aggressive environments.
Seamsil edge and overlap protection system is available in a range of colours to match the most popular shades used in industrial claddings. Silicone systems do not degrade by chalking and do not have self-cleaning properties. Any soiling can be removed by the application of a detergent wash. Silicones are compound polymer variations of silicon, found in sand and the second most common element in the earth’s crust. Silicones do not produce unwanted by-products or odour and at the end of life, break down naturally to inorganic silicates – again, found in sand.
