Asbestos Encapsulation

Once a popular material due to its excellent fire insulation property, asbestos has been illegal to use in Sydney for many years and 60 countries worldwide have banned or restricted its use. Despite the restrictions, it is estimated that at least 50% of all asbestos ever used in the Sydney is still present in ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, boilers, roofing, caulking and other areas. The safest and most cost-effective means of preventing the further release of harmful asbestos removal into the air is asbestos encapsulation, as opposed to asbestos removal which can often prove impractical and costly. With no disturbance to the asbestos, work can be completed quickly with minimal disruption.

Little surface preparation is required prior to the application of Flexcrete’s asbestos encapsulation membranes. Able to be applied to damp substrates in confined spaces, our asbestos encapsulation products ‘lock in’ dangerous fibres within a permanent, seamless, durable, waterproof membrane. Waterborne and non-hazardous, the coatings can be applied to both steel and concrete and cure to form a tough finish that assures long-term durability. They upgrade the surface whilst creating a safe environment for the future, ensuring full compliance with all asbestos regulations.
