General Description

ABS TRAP is a non-toxic, multi-purpose, and ready-to-use, low pressure airless spray applied wetting and penetrating encapsulant for all forms offriable asbestos. ABS TRAP allows for efficient, safe and efficient removal and handling of ACM (Asbestos Containing Material). ABS TRAP securely adheres to and binds friable ACM.

ABS TRAP’S unique surfactant properties will quickly penetrate and encapsulate asbestos fibers for removal. ABS TRAP can then be misted over the work area as a lock down encapsulant to seal any remaining asbestos fibers to the substrate. When dry, ABS TRAP forms a clear, non-abrasive, flexible film for safe and effective handling of ACM.


ABS TRAP may be applied with a low pressure airless sprayer, hand pump-up garden sprayers or poured
directly on the ACM.
