HOW MUCH SMARTWATER® DO I NEED TO PROTECT MY LEAD ROOF? HOW IS IT APPLIED?
SmartWater use the following formula, to calculate how much coverage you will get out of each pack size, 1ml of SmartWater traceable liquid = 1 linear metre of coverage (i.e. a 50ml bottle of SmartWater traceable liquid will cover 50 linear metres of external metal).
We work in this linear fashion, as SmartWater® should ideally be brushed in a continuous line along joints and seams of lead or copper roofing (where one sheet of metal joins the next) and along edges of any flashing (where it comes out of the wall and along the bottom edge), this gives our investigators the best possible chance of finding a trace in the event of a theft and subsequent recovery of the stolen metal.
For more information, please see our Metal Application Instructions here.
PLEASE NOTE – The dotted line is purely for illustrative purposes – SmartWater should always be applied in a continuous, unbroken line.
