Limped asbestos

Limped asbestos can be found in insulation on the underside of roofs and sometimes sides of buildings and warehouses.

It is often used as fire protection on steel and reinforced concrete columns and on underside of floors.

Sprayed limped asbestos contains up to 85% asbestos and breaks up very easily.

It is one of the most dangerous materials containing asbestos.

Even minor disturbance of sprayed coatings can release large quantities of asbestos fibres into the air where they can be breathed in.
