The use of traditional lead flashing in the building industry is outdated. Lead is toxic, heavy to work with and a great target for thief’s.
For almost a decade, Bitufa produces a non-lead flashing material, named Ubiflex, which has the same properties as traditional lead.
In 2017 Leadax is introduced on the market. Leadax has the look & feel of lead and is the first circular lead-replacement product, which is 31% better for the environment as traditional lead (NIBE). The product is made from waste and fully recyclable end of life.
