AMIANTOFIX

Consolidating, Impregnating Agent

Description

AMIANTOFIX is a compound based on polymers dispersed in water, additives, pigments and inorganic fillers. Once fully cured, the material exhibits good resistance to weathering and bacterial attack.

Usage field

AMIANTOFIX is used to treat cement artefacts and in particular to consolidate asbestos cement (AC) sheets covers to prevent the dispersion of fibers into the environment so as to help either fibers removal or disposal. This product can also be applied to friable or degraded artefacts. AMIANTOFIX is classifiable as a "Type D" encapsulant, based on the Decree of the Ministry of Health dated 08.20.1999 (OJ No 249 of 10.22.1999).

Packaging

Either 5 or 25 liters tanks

Application

The method of application is divided into three phases:

  • Safety Systems Preparation: first of all, both appropriate scaffolding and guardrails systems shall be erected around the building to ensure applicators safety during application.
  • Product Application: spray AMIANTOFIX to the upper face without any preliminary washing.
  • Artefact removal: allow at least half an hour prior to proceeding with removing the sheets and treat also the lower face with AMIANTOFIX.

If tools are used to drill or cut the sheets, add AMIANTOFIX to the tool cooling water.

Tool cleaning

Tools shall be cleaned with water if the product is still fresh; if the product has hardened, it can be removed by mechanical means.
