    What is encapsulation?

    Encapsulation is the process of applying a protective layer to the material, which encloses the asbestos fibres within it. Not only does this help to contain the asbestos, but it also protects it from future damage.
    Spray Cork has now been certified for asbestos encapsulation, providing protection against dangerous asbestos fibres and preventing it from going to landfill. Spray Cork comes with a 15-year product warranty for asbestos encapsulation, before it would need re–spraying to provide continued protection.
    Asbestos encapsulation can be used on domestic properties as well as industrial units, but asbestos needs to be in sound condition before it is encapsulated, otherwise it will need to be removed by a specialist.

    How dangerous is asbestos?

    According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) asbestos materials in good condition are considered safe unless asbestos fibres become airborne, which happens when materials become damaged. When it becomes damaged or reaches the end of its lifespan, these dangerous fibres can be released into the air, which can then be inhaled and potentially cause serious illness. If it is damaged, it will need to be removed by a specialist contractor.

    How do I deal with asbestos on my property?

    Whilst removal may seem like the obvious choice, it’s often best to leave any asbestos that is in good condition as it is, as removal can cause it to become damaged and release its dangerous fibres. Removal can also be complicated, expensive and needs to be carried out by specialist teams.
    As much of the asbestos used in the UK will be reaching its natural end of life, it is possible to encapsulate it rather than remove it – as long as it is still intact. As it doesn’t disturb the asbestos, the risk of dangerous airborne particles are reduced, making encapsulation a safer option that removal. Encapsulating it also keeps the asbestos out of landfill.

    Fire Resistance

    (Euro-class B safety rating), water resistant and breathable (this helps prevent mould and damp, gives people a healthier living and working space).
