NMG Construction LTD.
NMG Construction Ltd sought to develop a hybrid EPDM/ Aluminium roof valley flashing product that would mitigate water ingress into a roof structure. Recycled lead is shown to perish over short lifespans as a result of inferior quality in its production. NGM set out to develop a product that will seek to mitigate negative aspects of lead use in roofing.
NMG Construction Ltd has over 25 years of experience as main contractors engaged in a variety of both domestic and commercial building projects with particular expertise in the application of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer (M-class rubber) roofing membranes.
Innovation Voucher Objectives
Develop a product capable of replacing expensive and labour intensive conventional lead flashing (code 4 and 5) applications.
Wind uplift, thermo shock analysis, peel adhesion and impact/ shear tests for the hybrid concept.
