Can you use this on top of glasbesto cladding which is in sound condition will this paint Stick to the glasbesto cladding without rubbing down we are only allowed to clean surface with a water-based degreaser .

Ian lee from Gloucester (Uk) - 02/08/17


We are not familiar with 'Glasbesto', but if it is similar to rigid asbestos sheets - a dull granular surface - and does not contain wax or silicones, Thermoguard Asbestos Encapsulating Coating will bond extremely well without abrasion. 

Bond and every other characteristic are far better than vinyl emulsion, so a test patch to see if vinyl emulsion bonds will indicate if Thermoguard Asbestos Encapsulating Coating will bond well. 

Suitable for internal or external use but NOT on tops of roofs. 

Could you please advise me who makes this product?Also, I need to coat a big area of asbestos soffit boards, which have already been painted. Can this be applied directly to the painted area, without the need to scrape any loose paint off? The soffit boards are made of a low grade of asbestos cement.Kind regards Chris

Chris Wilson from Seghill (United Kingdom) - 12/07/17

The manufacturer of the Asbestos Encapsulating Coating is Thermoguard. The coating can be applied over previously painted substrates but if the existing paint is glossy then you would need to create a key before application. If there are any areas of loose or flaking existing coating then these would need to be removed but care must be taken when doing so as you are working with asbestos. The coating can be used internally and externally with the only exception that it can’t be used on a roof.
