Binding Agent for Construction and Demolition

Description

ASBESTOGUARD is a specialty polymer emulsion developed by RST. It is an asbestos-binding agent used during construction and demolition involving any movement of asbestos contaminated material. 

ASBESTOGUARD is diluted in water (1:20) and sprayed onto any asbestos contaminated material for long-term results. ASBESTOGUARD works on all material types.

The University of Newcastle, Australia has proven ASBESTOGUARD’schemistry effective in withstanding winds over 100km/hr.

Main areas of application include:

  • Construction projects including asbestos roofs
  • Asbestos contaminated building demolition
  • Contaminated earthworks
  • Asbestos contaminated rail and truck loads
  • All exposed asbestos contaminated materials

Application

When spraying on hard surfaces (such as building frames, asbestos sheeting), the surface must be thoroughly wetted and covered by ASBESTOGUARD.

Excellent results for contaminated earthworks have been achieved applying ASBESTOGUARD diluted at 1:20 and applied at 1 litre per m2 of material.

If the material to be treated is very dry and water repelling, we recommend the addition of RT60 Super Wetter at a dilution rate of 1:1000 in the ASBESTOGUARD solution.
