Cut Edge Corrosion Treatment – Advanced Profiled Steel Sheet Repair


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 advanced corrosion treatment and encapsulation

Uniquely, both GIROSIL® Base and GIROSIL® SE Sealant stabilise the substrate using laminar flake technology that seals and bonds with corrosion. Solvent free GIROSIL® Edge RC-E then prevents rainwater re-entering the lap. It can easily accommodate sheet movement and remains unaffected by UV and temperature. Fully moisture tolerant, it can be applied in the wet and hardens to a tough elastic coating with high impact and dirt resistance.

Key Benefits:

Instructions for Use:

GIROSIL® EDGE RC-E has been developed against a background of decades of experience of roof refurbishment and repair and is designed as a two stage application. Fully moisture tolerant, GIROSIL® Base quickly cures to allow a follow on installation of GIROSIL® SE sealant and GIROSIL® EDGE RC-E Topcoat that requires little in the way of expensive application equipment.

Specifications where Girosil RC-E would be used:

GIROSIL® Edge RC-E Approved Applicators:

Tritec Building Contractors Ltd have been fully trained and approved by Giromax with the task of installing Girosil® RC-E. Loose and flaking coatings, surface corrosion, swarf and debris are completely removed and abraded back to a firm adhered edge, this ensures the substrates are structurally sound and suitable for treatment. We then clean the surface and apply the Girosil® Basecoat allowing sufficient time to cure and fully seal with Girosil® SE & Girosil® RC-E Topcoat.

Girosil Edge RC-E is used in conjunction with the following products:
