Marshield has 70 tons of sheet lead manufactured from pure lead conforming to ASTM B-29, B-749 and Federal QQ-L-201F, QQ-L-171E standards

Our high quality Sheet Lead is manufactured from pure lead conforming to ASTM B-29, B-749 and Federal QQ-L-201F, QQ-L-171E.

Since lead sheeting has very little inherent structural strength, most applications require that the sheet lead be supported in some fashion, or that the lead sheet be laminated to provide a more rigid building material. MarShield provides sheet lead as laminated lead panels, adhesive bonded to materials such as plywood (lead plywood), gypsum board (lead gypsum board), and other supporting materials.

With our large inventory of sheet lead most orders can be shipped out on the same day.

Versatility of Sheet Lead

Sheet lead possesses many benefits that make it highly desirable in a variety of applications. Lead is a very soft metal that can be easily formed and cut to size by hand at room temperatures without work hardening. The inherent density of lead sheeting coupled with its high limpness value give it many uses in industry. Sheet lead is highly resistant to corrosion so it is a desirable product to use for corrosive acids tank linings, strong industrial chemicals, and corrosion resistant sealing gaskets.

It is equally practical for use in salt water applications and is very good for roofing applications where it resists the effects of acid rain. The high limpness value and its consistent density also make lead sheeting a very good sound damper and extremely effective at isolating vibration. Sheet lead is waterproof and is often used as the waterproof barrier beneath fountains, reflecting pools and even shower stall bases.
