During the installation of new box gutters at a Sydney facility with asbestos roofs, on site testing detected the presence of asbestos fibres in the gutters.
This is a timely reminder to those who work near, or with materials containing asbestos, to take care and follow the correct work procedures, to protect your client, but just as importantly your employees.
Weathered asbestos roof sheets are in a constant state of breakdown, due to the presence of lichen, secreting oxolic acid, which breaks down the cement content of the roof sheets, over time exposing the previously bonded asbestos fibres.
Currently there are only two ways to stop this breakdown process, one is to remove and replace the entire roof, the other is to treat the surface of the roof with an encapsulation coating.
Asbestos Roof Solutions assess many aged asbestos roofs every year and are the number one applicator for Crommelins Fibro-seal asbestos roof encapsulation system in Australia.
