Thoroughly clean surfaces and allow to dry.

In all cases, the asbestos cement substrate will require cleaning. Jet wash lances should not be used, as they can destroy the asbestos cement substrate.

One of the following methods should be employed:

  • Closed Box Pressure wash (HSE Approved Method).
  • Steam cleaning using DOFF 150°C steam (Not HSE Approved).

All waste must be treated as being contaminated with asbestos and must be double bagged and then disposed of using a licensed disposal facility, with consignment note retained for the health and safety file. Waste water must be filtered to 5 μm to ensure that no waste water enters the mains drainage system.

Additional reference: see HSE guidance note a12, “Cleaning weathered asbestos cement (AC) roofing and cladding”

All surfaces must be clean and dry prior to application. Please note that when using airless spray, an initial mist coat of ASBESTOSEAL 20, or use of Liquasil Asbestos Cement Stabilising Solution is strongly recommended in order to achieve a uniform finish on porous substrates. 

Consult manufacturer's literature for further details on spray application guidelines.
