Asbestos in Concrete

Asbestos Concrete, also known as Transite, is a cement mixture that contains white Asbestos and is used in a variety of Asbestos products, primarily in construction. Asbestos was particularly popular in the 90s, used in piping, roofing and a variety of other building materials such as Asbestos Concrete sheets and Asbestos Concrete boards.

It is almost impossible to tell if Concrete products contain Asbestos just by looking. Asbestos Concrete is at its most dangerous whilst being prepared, and so Asbestos Concrete is generally considered to be safe as long as it is intact, as the fibres are bonded into the finished product. However, Concrete can corrode and deteriorate over time and any that is broken or crumbling is potentially dangerous as this can release harmful Asbestos particles into the air which can then be inhaled. If you suspect there might be Asbestos Concrete in your residential or commercial property, the safest course of action is to call in professionals.

We understand that finding Concrete Asbestos in your home or commercial property can be a worry and would always encourage it to be handled by those who are specially trained and qualified.

The Mick George Group is proud to be fully licensed in Asbestos management. We will expertly survey your property, and if Asbestos Concrete is found intact with no degradation, no action may be needed as the Asbestos is in a safe state. Removal may not always be necessary, as some Asbestos Concrete can be safely covered and encapsulated to prevent any Asbestos from escaping.

However, if the Concrete is broken or crumbling or you are planning building or renovation work, then we can carefully and safely remove any Concrete bonded Asbestos.
