Cut Edge Corrosion

Corrosion commonly starts as edge peel at the cut edges of a metal sheet. It develops through normal weathering, mainly on roofs and rapidly accelerates, especially at the sheet overlap as a result of capillary held rainwater. Edge corrosion is a progressive problem and, if neglected, can develop away from the cut edge, destroying the weather-sealed lap joint and gutter overhang. Early detection and effective treatment prevents costly future sheet replacement.


Preserve cut edge joint protection without disturbing existing fixings or sheets. GIROSIL® EDGE RC-E is the revolutionary next generation of coatings from Giromax, designed to treat both the top and reverse side of the cut edge through matchless corrosion treatment and encapsulation. Fully moisture tolerant GIROSIL®provides a strong, flexible external joint that can be installed without disturbing existing fixings and sheets and remains unaffected by UV or weather and temperature extremes.


GIROSIL® EDGE RC-E has been developed against a background of decades of experience of roof repair and is designed to overcome application limitations imposed by adverse weather conditions. It is a fully moisture tolerant system, incorporating laminar flake tecnology in both Basecoat and Sealant followed by brush applied coloured Topcoat.

Its application simplicity makes GIROSIL® EDGE RC-E a cost effective  cure for cut edge corrosion treatment and is offered with a 15 year performance guarantee.
