What Are Common Areas Asbestos Is Found In Flooring?

Blackjack glue

This type of glue is an adhesive that’s usually found beneath floor coverings including vinyl blackjack tiles. Asbestos was mixed with this adhesive to make a more durable solution. This adhesive is black in colour and usually crumbles when you try to remove it.

Emulsion Adhesive

This emulsion adhesive is a synthetic form of adhesive used prior to the 1980s. It was commonly used to install synthetic laminates. You’ll find this adhesive in a lot of buildings where laminate flooring such as floor tiles are bonded to wood timber.

Fibrous Adhesive

This liquid form of adhesive (also known as Millboard) was typically applied with a brush or sprayer. Over time, It was not uncommon for this adhesive to become extremely brittle and break down. When this fragile adhesive breaks down, it can generate asbestos contaminated dust and should be handled with extreme caution.

What are the dangers of asbestos in tiles and flooring?Your Title Goes Here

Mixing asbestos when manufacturing flooring tiles was a common practice up until the 1990s, and was used for its heat resistance properties and insulation. When combined with flooring materials, the asbestos fibres are bonded together in a non-friable state, which means the fibres are sealed in and do not pose any threat.

This changes however, if disturbed, especially during the removal or demolition phase when working on a building built before the 1980s, or through general wear and tear over time. Once disturbed, the asbestos in the floors turn into a friable state, which is when it becomes extremely dangerous as these fibres become airborne, and risks toxic asbestos inhalation by anyone near by.
