Britannia Aquashield Emergency Leak Repair seals and waterproofs roofs on a temporary basis however bad the weather. Cracks need not crack you up... with this emergency coating, you can patch them up. Suitable for almost any building you can think of, but is not suitable for wooden surfaces, tanking, fishponds or internal use.

Product Use in the Workplace

  • Prison - As any prison guard will tell you, prisons are challenging places; eyes and ears need to be everywhere. If cracks begin to appear on the roofs, they need to be fixed with the minimum of disruption, so that the security of the prison is not compromised.
  • School - Cracks in roofs have the capacity to let water into the building. An instant patch is required to keep the school operating as normal. Britannia Aquashield Emergency Leak Repair is the solution to your problem in just such an emergency.
  • Factory - Time is money. Money is time. When cracks unexpectedly appear on the factory roof, there may not be time to perform a full fix. What you're looking for in this instance is an emergency fix; something that will fill-in the crack and provide waterproofing properties in the short term.

Features & Benefits

  • Can be applied in falling rain or even under water.
  • Suitable for all building surfaces.
  • Ready to use.
  • External use only.
  • Solvent-based.

Preparation & Application

Dirt build up, moss and loose material should be removed by scraping or brushing. In cold conditions any ice present on the surface must be removed. Britannia Emergency leak repair should be applied directly to the substrate, no priming is normally required. Application by a good quality brush, roller or squeegee. Best results are achieved when “Stippled” into cracks and rough surfaces. Apply liberally to bridge small holes up to 1/8” (3mm) and larger using Britannia’s Reinforcing Scrim.

Good working practice should be followed and safety/ walking boards should be utilised where required. The specification and coverage rates are given in good faith and are based on the manufacturer's experience and knowledge but without liability.

For all cleaning, use Britannia White Spirit.

questions Mrs G Bate on 20/12/2018

Hi will this product be OK to put over a plastic covering on a lean to.


If the plastic is rigid and a reasonable thickness then it should be OK as a temporary, short term measure. If the plastic is thin sheet (tarpaulin or similar) then it would not be suitable.
