Delvemade’s popular Cut Edge Corrosion Seminars are back
Delvemade, offers a leading range of silicone based products within its protective coatings programme, for cut edge corrosion, a serious problem for steel roofs.
For many years Delvemade has provided a free seminar to qualified specifiers within the building industry. The presentations have been particularly well received by building surveyors practices, architects and universities. After a short period of disruption we are delighted to announce that the 2 hour seminars are underway once again. As before, the talks will be provided at venues and offices across the UK by Tony Condron, Delvemade founder and acknowledged expert on the subject. Tony will be aided by Production & Sales Coordinator, Tom Armitt, who recently joined Delvemade from Itac, where he has been involved with the manufacturing process.

Delcote needs no primers
Often, the first time that you know you have a problem with a metal roof is when it leaks. Electronics company Maplins, discovered trouble with their roof during planned refurbishment of their premises, in Swansea. The steel roof had not been maintained, yet it still appeared fine from the underside. Once a survey was conducted from on top, it was obvious that the PVC coated steel roof sheets were exhibiting classic age related delamination of the original factory applied coating, plus associated substrate corrosion. Over-sheeting provided one answer but that would have caused considerable cost, and importantly disruption and closure of Maplins busy store. Instead the decision was taken to recoat the roof, with two coats of Delvemade’s Delcote – a liquid silicone which requires no primers.
Delcote is an inorganic mineral-based silicone with outstanding natural resistance to corrosion and UV light. It forms a tenacious, oxygen-free bond with steel to deliver protection equal to or better than the original product. When used in conjunction with Seamsil – the UK’s leading cut edge corrosion and overlap treatment, it forms a unique system that provides a seamless, proven, long-term solution to the vast majority of existing metal roof problems.
For the Maplins project, local qualified applicator – Coatings and Blastings Limited first treated the roof with Seamsil to seal critical lap joints and fixings followed by two coats of Slate Grey Delcote. Seamsil and Delcote distributor Giromax Limited undertook application control.
