Application Process



Before starting work, implement appropriate safety measures including wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) such as respirators, gloves, and protective clothing.


Seal off the work area to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers to other parts of the building or environment.


Begin by conducting a thorough inspection of the asbestos-containing material (ACM) to assess its condition and extent of deterioration.


Ensure that all surfaces are clean, dry, and free from dust, dirt, and debris before proceeding with encapsulation. 


Apply Shieldcoat Bleachy two days prior to starting coating process.  

First, using Shieldseal AES, apply the coating in thin even layers covering the whole surface. Shieldseal AES will penetrate and bond with asbestos fibers, encapsulating them and preventing the release of their harmful fibers.


Allow the primer to dry completely before proceeding to the next step. Drying times may vary based on environmental conditions.

Follow up with the application of Watershield. Apply Watershield using the same method as Shieldseal AES, ensuring even coverage over the surface of the ACM.


Watershield forms a waterproof barrier that further protects the encapsulated asbestos and enhances the durability of the encapsulation system.

Choose the appropriate color and sheen of Premium Finish based on the desired aesthetic outcome. We offer a range of finishes, including matte, satin, and gloss, in various colors to suit different preferences and architectural styles. You can view our factory colours here.


Apply the first coat of Premium Finish evenly over the primed roof surface. Work in manageable sections to ensure thorough coverage and avoid overlapping marks. Pay special attention to edges, corners, and areas prone to water pooling or exposure.


Once the first coat is dry, apply the second coat of Premium Finish following the same application method as the first coat. Ensure that the second coat is applied evenly and covers any missed spots or uneven areas from the first coat.

Testing: Ensure air monitoring or surface testing to verify the effectiveness of the encapsulation process and ensure that no asbestos fibers are being released into the air.


Clean-Up and Disposal: Clean up the work area thoroughly, disposing of any debris, used materials, and PPE according to local regulations and guidelines for asbestos-containing materials. Decontaminate tools and equipment used during the encapsulation process to prevent the spread of asbestos fibers.


Application Method: The method of choice for applying Shieldcoat Roof Coatings is a Paint Sprayer. However, you can also use a brush or roller. Ensure all coats are applied evenly onto roof surface. Ensure uniform coverage and pay special attention to seams and edges.


Approved Applicators: Ensure that the coating system is applied by an approved applicator. This guarantees the quality of the application and the effectiveness of the coating system.


Guarantee: When this coating system is applied by an approved applicator, it comes with a 15 year guarantee. This guarantee provides assurance of the coating system's performance and durability.


Maintenance: After the coating system is applied, regular maintenance is essential to preserve its effectiveness. Periodic cleaning is a must for keeping your roof in premium condition.
