For thousands of years, lead has been used by mankind in a variety of ways. Recent discoveries have shown that lead smelting took place in Turkey almost 9,000 years ago. While the British Museum in London has on display a lead statuette which dates from Egypt in around 3,000 B.C.
Lead sheet life span is over 80 years and is mainly used as a weatherproofing material in the construction industry due to the high resistance of lead to corrosion. Lead has long been a vitality important building material in more recent times. Thanks to its flexibility and strength, this is the best way to make complex roofs waterproof. And, it works out cheaper because it is a long term solution. Lead is not a short term solution. Indeed, it is an investment to your property.
Lead is always in style and when pre-treated with patination oil lead will keep its look for decades even during harshest climate condition.
Lead has many more applications these days: to provide soundproofing in a variety of acoustic applications, to protect medical staff and patients from exposure to X-rays, as radiation shielding in nuclear power stations and as ballast in a wide range of nautical vessels for example.
