This document presents information on the encapsulation of asbestos-containing friable insulation materials FIM. Encapsulation, which is a procedure to seal in asbestos fibers that may be subject to ready release on minimal disturbance, is a new alternative approach to the abatement of hazards from asbestos insulating materials. Encapsulation may be used in specific sites and cases instead of removal of asbestos-containing FIM. This document introduces the facilities architect or engineer to encapsulant materials, established and planned testing criteria, application techniques, the advantages and drawbacks to using encapsulants, and a guide specification for encapsulation of asbestos-containing FIM.
