Bonded Asbestos Removal

Bonded asbestos is any material that contains asbestos and has a strong bonding matrix. This matrix is usually cement, which means it is very stable. Bonded Asbestos Removal is the most common type of asbestos removal in Queensland. Most houses only contain bonded asbestos, though there are exceptions.

Bonded asbestos risks are easier to control and manage due to the cement that bonds the asbestos into the sheet.The stability of the product means it is less likely that asbestos fibres will get into the air during removal or maintenance.
