Cut Edge Corrosion


Industrial roofing suffers from cut edge corrosion due to the coatings not protecting the exposed edge of the steel roof sheeting. Cut edge corrosion can be found on laps, sheet ends and generally where a cut to the metal roof sheet has occurred. Cut edge treatment can be completed with little fuss on small areas. Larger projects require more planning due to curing times, but are still achievable within short time frames. Once the rust has been rubbed away and the surface is back to clean metal, a primer product is applied to stabilise the surface. Once cured a top coat is applied. Once this is cured you will have a guaranteed system in place.
