The best asbestos encapsulation solution

Commonly found within residential and industrial properties built in the mid-20th century, asbestos was used far and wide in construction, from asbestos insulating board (AIB) ceiling tiles and external cladding, through to corrugated sheeting to strengthen roofing materials. While asbestos is no longer used in the UK, it is not required to have it removed from existing buildings, so long as the material is not damaged and releasing any hazardous fibres, making encapsulation an ideal solution to ensure the material stays intact.

Proven to be cheaper and safer than removal, materials containing asbestos can now be sprayed with SprayCork to safely encase it, making it ideal for tackling vast industrial spaces. Encapsulation also keeps the waste out of landfill, plus any buildings where asbestos has been encased can qualify for land remediation tax relief, as the process is protecting the building and the environment from harmful contaminants.

The environmentally-sound building coating has a multitude of applications and we continue to find more niche uses for it, expanding its possibilities. We’ve seen more enquiries coming through for this type of application as asbestos tiles installed in the 60’s and 70’s is quickly reaching the end of their average lifespan.
SprayCork comes with a 15-year warranty for asbestos encapsulation, before the surface would need to be re-sprayed to ensure continued protection.

Asbestos Encapsulation FAQs

What area do you cover?

Tiwi Solutions are nationwide installers of SprayCork for asbestos encapsulation.

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 or building?

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 – if it is still intact. As it doesn’t disturb the asbestos, the risk of dangerous airborne particles is reduced, making encapsulation a safer option that removal. Encapsulating it also keeps the asbestos out of landfill.
