DELCOTE® Asbestos Cement Encapsulation
DELCOTE® is a silicone coating designed for re-coating roof and wall cladding substrate including masonry, concrete, asbestos cement, polyurethane foam and most painted or unpainted metals.
If you occupy a building before the year 2000 you have a duty to manage the risk from asbestos, and old leaking asbestos roofs present a special maintenance problem. Sheets are fragile and often cracked while loose corroded fixings add to lift and leakage.
The dangers of disturbing the asbestos sheet means even the simplest repair must be undertaken following careful planning to avoid airborne release of harmful fibres. Stringent disposal regulations mean that replacement is costly and hugely disruptive.
Oversheeting adds weight, risks disturbing the sheet through fixing and may lead to condensation without addressing the underlying problem of deteriorating asbestos cement. This problem is faced by thousands of industrial and commercial units throughout the country.
DELCOTE® is a safer and more cost effective solution to the problem – a fully breathing silicone coating that will not crack or blister.
Using SEAMSIL® to seal bolts and minor cracks, it encapsulates the sheet to provide an enduring flexible, weatherproof membrane, allowing the sheets to remain undisturbed and eliminating the cost and disruption of removal.
