What is Asbestos Encapsulation?

Not all asbestos needs to be removed. Undamaged asbestos (and even some damaged asbestos) can be made safe by repairing it and either sealing or enclosing it to prevent damage – a process called asbestos encapsulation.

Encapsulation is a method of covering the asbestos with high performance bandages and paint coatings to prevent asbestos fibres escaping. Once encapsulated the area is labelled and added to your Asbestos Register.
