About Sheet Lead

Sheet Lead

Marshield has 70 tons of sheet lead in stock and ready to ship. 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 lined plywood), gypsum board (lead lined drywall), and other supporting materials.

The Versatility of Sheet Lead and Its Uses

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. Lead is a nonferrous metal so it does not rust and its inherent density 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 tank linings for corrosive acids and 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. Its high limpness value and its consistent density make it a very good sound damper and very effective at isolating vibration. It is waterproof and is often used as the waterproof barrier beneath fountains, reflecting pools and even shower stall bases.

We accept Sheet Lead orders for a minimum of $500 from commercial accounts to be used in industrial, construction, nuclear, medical, veterinary, scientific research, military, and national defence, etc. applications.
