Most importantly, Asbestos sprayed coatings is one of the most dangerous materials containing up to 85% asbestos. Compared to other types of asbestos, it breaks up very easily. In the event that the sprayed coating is disturbed (even slightly). Very large amounts of asbestos fibres will be released into the air where they can be breathed in.
You tend to find sprayed coatings used as insulation on the underside of roofs. As well as on the side of buildings and warehouses. Also used on steel, reinforced concrete beams/columns and even on the underside of floors.
Sprayed Coatings also known as limpet or flock is made up of the 3 main types of asbestos. Amosite, Chrysotile, and Crocidolite. Similarly to other Asbestos products, limpet was used in the 1950s and slowly phased out by the late 1970s.
