How does asbestos encapsulation work?

Encapsulation involves covering the asbestos with performance coating that predominantly:

  • Protects and repairs any damaged asbestos and seals any exposed, raw asbestos edges
  • Increases the useful life of the material
  • Reduces any fibre release through general degradation
  • Encapsulation creates a non-hazardous work environment.
  • Protects against accidental knocks and scrapes
  • Improves the overall appearance of the material

Benefits of LiquidRubberCoatings for Asbestos Encapsulation:

  • There is NO disruption to your business. As we don’t remove the asbestos roof, you can continue working.
  • Our specialist asbestos roof coating structurally improves the whole roof.
  • Much cheaper than removing the asbestos and having a new roof.
  • Our asbestos roof coatings are VOC-free and environmentally friendly.

RubberGuard Asbestos Roof coating

RubberGuard is a decorative, antifungal protective coating layer, designed for long term durability and is applied to the primed surface. It is required to apply two top coats of RubberGuard The coating acts as a UV resistant layer, giving them a longer life span

What are the benefits?

While asbestos removal may seem like the obvious choice for dealing with asbestos, it’s often complicated, expensive and can result in extensive downtime. In contrast, asbestos encapsulation within a seamless, protective coating is possibly the safest and most cost-effective method of asbestos management. It involves relatively little disturbance of the asbestos, therefore minimizing risk.

But that’s not the only advantage to asbestos encapsulation. For example, roofs are an area where asbestos tends to be rife, with an estimated 1.5 million non-domestic properties reported to have an asbestos roof. Opting to encapsulate roof asbestos as opposed to removing it:

  • Eradicates the need to dispose of the material, which can be hazardous, costly and is subject to strict controls
  • Can be completed more efficiently which, in turn, reduces overall disruption, on-site time and any associated costs


Our Steps for encapsulation:

Step 1 -Application of an antifungal

Step 2: - Application of a primer/bonding agent

Step 3: - Application of RubberGuard protective coating that is UV Stable & eco-friendly


Asbestos Roof Primer/ Bonding agent

The primer sealer is specifically designed to penetrate through degraded cement layer to the base material beneath, thereby effectively binding the unstable elements to the substrate. The primer/ bonding agent provides an excellent adhesive layer for the RubberGuard coating to follow.
