Creating Safer Work Environments
FOSTER Bridging Encapsulant is a pigmented single component, water based elastomeric product for use over interior fibrous and cementitious types of asbestos containing materials (ACM). It is easily spray-applied and after curing forms a tough, durable, elastomeric film over the ACM, effectively retarding the fallout of friable asbestos fibers.
Foster® Asbestos Removal Encapsulant is a polymeric, water-based coating. It penetrates and "wets-out" all types of asbestos quickly and thoroughly, including AMOSITE and CROCIDOLITE. As it penetrates through the ACM, it absorbs onto the individual fibers to lock them together, reducing the possibility of loose fibers from becoming airborne during the removal process. Creating an aerosol atmosphere during its initial application allows the atomized material to attach itself to, and "wet-out", pre-existing airborne fibers, providing improved air quality during the removal operation. These now weighted fibers collect on the containment structure. If allowed to dry they become adhered, reducing the possibility of reintroduction, and reducing the high cost of the labor-intensive final clean-up.
Bridging Mastic is a field proven bridging encapsulant. Upon cure, 32-80 forms a tough, light colored, washable, abrasion resistant, elastomeric coating that economically abates the release of asbestos fibers from both conventional and spray applied asbestos-containing materials (ACM). Used with glass cloth, 32-80 is ideal for use over interior pipe covering and boiler lagging insulations.
FOSTER® PROTEKTOR® SEALANT is a single-component, penetrating encapsulation coating for abating asbestos fiber fallout (retention method).
