Asbestos Safe Treatment Waterproof Coating & Encapsulation
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals, which all have in common their eponymous asbestiform habit: i.e. long (roughly 1:20 aspect ratio), thin fibrous crystals, with each visible fiber composed of millions of microscopic "fibrils" that can be released by abrasion and other processes.
Asbestos can be found in any building built before the year 2000 (houses, factories, offices, schools, hospitals etc) and causes around 5000 deaths every year.
Why is asbestos dangerous?
- Asbestos still kills around 5000 workers each year, this is more than the number of people killed on the road.
- Around 20 tradesman die each week as a result of past exposure
- However, asbestos is not just a problem of the past. It can be present today in any building built or refurbished before the year 2000.
When materials that contain asbestos are disturbed or damaged, fibres are released into the air. When these fibres are inhaled they can cause serious diseases. These diseases will not affect you immediately; they often take a long time to develop, but once diagnosed, it is often too late to do anything. This is why it is important that you protect yourself now.

FULLY BONDS, WATERPROOFS AND ENCAPSULATES ASBESTOS
Liquid Rubber Asbestos Encapsulation has been developed over time to help combat the problems that exist with old, damaged and leaking asbestos roofs of all sizes. One main concern that we always hear from customers is the extreme costs involved. Our key focus is to provide an alternative solution to the costs of over cladding asbestos, removal and disposal. Asbestos over coating and asbestos roof repair provide real world solutions to today's asbestos concerns.
Suitable For: Asbestos - Fiber Cement
Ideal For: Industrial - Pitched Asbestos - Factories - Asbestos Roof Repair
Liquid Rubber Asbestos Encapsulation is a unique modified elastomeric asphalt emulsion developed to simplify the waterproofing process and overcome the problems of materials containing toxic solvents and VOC's. It has been specifically formulated as a spray applied fully protective waterproofing membrane. The cold applied, duel component system is applied using a specialist airless spray system. Liquid Rubber Asbestos Encapsulation provides an instant setting membrane that offers excellent waterpoofing, strength, elasticity and adhesion.
COST EFFECTIVE & ECO FRIENDLY
Liquid Rubber is completely eco-friendly and is ideal for commercial and industrial applications where disruption to building operations can be very costly endeavour especially when removing or over cladding. Liquid Rubber is a highly cost effective solution to refurbishment, removal or new roof waterproofing
