Leadax is the main lead substitute in the world that wears like lead and is malleable and pliable as lead. Leadax is equivalent to Code 5.
Leadax Original is the first lead alternative in the world with the corresponding properties as traditional lead. Leadax is not harmful to health or the environment, making it a better solution for those that are looking to work on environment-friendly projects. From cavity walls to chimneys, Leadax is utilised and processed in the same way as to lead without compromise!
Leadax Original is a completely circular product constructed from recycled polyvinyl butyral (PVB). Leadax has won several awards for its innovative lead replacement. Unlike traditional water-resistant materials, Leadax’ products do not contain any heavy metals. In addition, Leadax is available in longer strips. So you can seal larger areas with less overlap, saving you materials and time.
Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) is the plastic foil in safety glass that could not be reused until now. There is an abundance of PVB available worldwide. In Europe alone, this waste pile weighs in at more than 1.5 billion kilograms (each year!). For comparison: This is the weight of 150 Eiffel towers. Besides that, contemporary products for waterproofing buildings are not sustainable, have a large carbon footprint and are (often) toxic.
