AsbestGuard - Coating for encapsulation of asbestos
AsbestGuard is a waterborne functional coating for interior use, suitable for encapsulation of asbestos and sealing of asbestos that can not be
removed as a result of the construction conditions. AsbestGuard's unique properties, fire protection (EN13501-1, Class A2-s1d0), condense prevention, insulation and noise damping, assures the technical properties of the asbestos.
AsbestGuard is suitable for interior treatment of asbestos-cement or asbestos-sprayed concrete surfaces, acoustic panels, ventilation insulation and pipes.
Read the application instructions carefully before starting the painting work.
Depending on the surfaces. (see Application).
Airless spray, brush or roller. For airless spray application, use a nozzle size of 0.027"-0.029".
Drying time at 23°C and 50% relative air humidity
Dry to touch after 1-2 hours, depending on film thickness. Dry after 8-12 hours.
Resistant to cleaning detergents.
Approx. 1.1 kg/l (ISO 2811)
Shelf-life: 2 years. Protect from frost. Store in a dry and cool place, protected from sunlight. Close the can carefully for future use. Open can does not withstand long term storage.
The surface to be coated must be dry, the temperature of the air and surface at least +5 °C, and the relative humidity of the air below 80 %.
Always investigate the condition of the asbestos-treated substrate or asbestos-cement. Avoid encapsulation of asbestos substrates in bad condition and where the substrate is exposed to mechanical wear.
Sanitation - sealing of asbestos
After removal of asbestos, vacuum clean all asbestos covered surfaces well, before spraying the surfaces with a thin layer of ProSeal (10m²/l) to seal remaining dust.
Stir AsbestGuard well before use. The product is ready to use andshould not be diluted.
Vacuum clean all asbestos covered surfaces well. Spray the surface with a thin layer of ProSeal (5m²/l) to seal remaining dust.
Encapsulate the surface by applying AsbestGuard 2 times by airless spray 0,5-1m²/l (or 1-2kg/m²) for even surfaces. For coarse surface,
consumption should be increased.
If the boards are in good condition, make sure the surface is clean from dirt and grease. Spray the surface with a thin layer of ProSeal (10m²/l) to seal remaining dust.
Encapsulate the surface by applying AsbestGuard 1 time by airless spray 1m²/l (or 1 kg/m²).
Clean the surface and repair damages where needed. Spray the surface with a thin layer of ProSeal (10m²/l) to seal remaining dust.
Encapsulate the surface by applying AsbestGuard 2 times by airless spray application 0,5-1m²/l (1-2kg/m² ).
Cleaning of tools
Remove excess coating from tools, and clean them with water.
Tikkurila Tool Cleaner is recommended for removing hardened coating from tools.
Avoid high-pressure cleaning.
