Wakaflex is made from Polyisobutylene (PIB – rubber) with an aluminium rib mesh insert and butyl adhesive strips along both edges that adhere to all tile, slate and metal roof profiles so there is no need for additional adhesives. That means it’s easy to install and the product itself is very light, only 4.5kgs for a 280mm x 5m roll. Wakaflex also comes in 370mm & 560mm wide lead grey coloured rolls.

Wakaflex flashing tape can be installed up to 50% quicker than traditional flashings and no specialist tools are required. Wakaflex is available in four colours in the 280mm size: lead grey, black, brown and terracotta. It also comes with a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. Wakaflex complies with the CSIRO requirements for AS 2904:1995 ‘Damp Course Flashings’.

Wakaflex does not expand or contract in the heat, so the complete roll length can be installed in one piece without the need to cut it and over-lap every 1.5m as with lead flashings. Wakaflex flashing tape has the unique ability to bond to itself, meaning that when you join two rolls by over-lapping 30mm, Wakaflex chemically bonds to itself forming one weather tight piece of flashing, greatly reducing wastage of material.

We feel Wakaflex has huge potential in the building industry as a safe roofing product that can replace toxic lead, especially with the current water shortages, and the drive by the Australian government to increase water tank usage.
