British Standard BS EN 12588 was drawn up to ensure Rolled Lead Sheet is produced to precise and consistent thickness tolerances and exact chemical composition. This ensures the maximum lifespan for correctly fitted Lead Sheet used in construction. The British Standard requires that Lead Sheet conforms to quality of not less than 99.81% pure Lead and has a range of standard thicknesses with a tolerance of +/- 5%. At BLM, we always aim at a quality of not less than 99.93% Lead in the alloy used for producing our Rolled Lead Sheet.
Lead sheet is used by many different industries and for multiple applications. This type of lead is most commonly used as roofing and flashing, tank lining, soundproofing, radiation shielding, and corrosion protection.
