Asbestos Encapsulation

If the asbestos on your site is in sound condition with minimal risk of it degrading or being damaged then asbestos encapsulation can be an excellent option to ensure it stays in a safe condition.

What are the Benefits of Asbestos Encapsulation?

Asbestos Encapsulation

Put simply the major advantage of asbestos encapsulation over removal is the price. Encapsulation in most cases is far less expensive than removing the asbestos from site. However, depending on the circumstances it is often advisable to provide a barrier around the asbestos to minimise the chance of it posing a danger in the future.

What Is Asbestos Encapsulation?

Asbestos encapsulation involves surrounding the asbestos with a flexible barrier which forms an outer protective layer minimising the chance of damage. Usually this is carried out by spraying a flexible coating onto the asbestos material although other types of barrier are also used.
