Seamsil ® 20 Years on Top at ASDA

 In an association that now goes back over 20 years, SEAMSIL® has once again been specified and used at one of Asda’s main UK facilities. Its use on their busy Pontefract site makes it the 34th Asda store or distribution centre to be treated with SEAMSIL® the patented silicone time proven external repair system for cut edge corrosion on profiled Plastisol/PVDF coated steel roof sheeting.

Manufactured by Delvemade Ltd, SEAMSIL® was invented and developed over 20 years ago with the full co-operation of BSC (now Tata Steel) to provide an effective long term solution to edge corrosion. Caused by a combination of on-site cutting, poor installation techniques, acid rain and pollution retention in critical roof overlaps and gutter overhangs, the resultant corrosion can play havoc with profiled steel roof sheets and if not treated quickly and effectively can lead eventually to partial or complete roof replacement.

SEAMSIL® is distributed by Giromax who oversee all installations to ensure it provides the ideal sustainable answer to all these problems helping to extend the life of roofs to preserve the value of the buildings. The use of Seamsil on the Pontefract site was specified by Asda’s own facilities management team and the work was undertaken by Giromax and Tata Steel approved contractor Kettles Limited, an experienced SEAMSIL® applicator for the past 20 years who installed the first Seamsil treatment at Asda’s Lutterworth Magna Park distribution centre in 1994.
