Asbestos Coating Primer
Visa Electron
Product Description

A white latex polymer based emulsion, specially formulated to seal, prime and maximise the adherence of the Asbestos Roof Coating.

Asbestos Coating Primer has been developed to improve safety prior to application of the Asbestos Roof Coating on corrugated asbestos cement roofs. The primer helps to suppress surface dusting as well as inhibit the release and spread of asbestos fibres which could be harmful to health. It will quickly absorb into porous asbestos roof sheeting as well as any cladding constructed from the same material.


  1. Sealing of industrial asbestos roof sheeting
  2. Sealing of warehouse and garage roofs
  3. Sealing of storage areas containing asbestos cladding and roof sheets

When use externally, this product is formulated to seal the surface of asbestos cement roof sheets as well as prevent dusting and avoid the release of potentially harmful asbestos fibres. For expediency, it can be applied a short-term solution to asbestos that is starting tp deteriorate. In this instance 2 coats are advisable. However, it is generally used as an effective primer for Climashield Asbestos Roof Coating to improve the weather resistance and durability of asbestos roof sheets.

When used internally, the asbestos primer will inhibit surface dusting and can applied to the internal face of asbestos roofs and cladding.

As a primer for the Asbestos Roof Coating, it is frequently used on friable asbestos surfaces, as well as porous areas where the surface is showing signs of 'fretting' and general deterioration.

Asbestos coated roofs, especially older ones, can be very fragile and prone to break quite easily. With this in mind, any asbestos roof should only be accessed with great caution when undertaking any surface preparation or asbestos coating work. This means using the recommended crawler boards that spread weight evenly, as well as the correct harnessing and access towers needed to complete any project. Smartseal are first and foremost, suppliers of cleaning products, coatings and sealers. We are NOT Health & Safety advisors, so cannot provide definitive guidance on areas such as 'working at height' or 'working with asbestos'. Prior to undertaking any work, if you do not have the relevant experience in this sector, we strongly recommend that you contact a qualified Health & Safety professional for guidance in all areas relating to PPE, best practice etc.

Any recommendations are made without warranty or guarantee, as to how accurate, reliable or complete they are. This is because any conditions of use or application are outside our control and it is the responsibility of the user to satisfy themselves as to the suitability of the product when selecting it for use on any project.
