Colourless product to be used as a wetting agent, a temporary encapsulant or a fireproof agent. The Childers CP-240 is ideal for asbestos abatement or any other type of decontamination work as well as for general renovation near asbestos. Sold by the jug of 5 gallons.
Childers CP-240 is a water-based product without any solvents. It is easy to apply lock, stock and barrel or diluted on most materials containing asbestos. It may also be used to fireproof building supplies.
Foster manufacturer’s code: CP-240.
The total drying time depends on the thickness of the layer of product as well as the surrounding conditions, that is, temperature and the humidity rate. For reference, at least 2 hours are necessary to get a dry surface and 16 hours for a complete drying.
For abatement work without spreading asbestos fibres in the air, one should use this product in diluted form. The recommended concentration is 1 qty of CP-240 for 4 qty of water which should be applied with a handheld sprayer. Simply wet to saturation the brittle surface and scrape the surface.
To use this CP-240 as a temporary encapsulant agent after an asbestos abatement job, use in a pure form; use the CP-240 lock, stock and barrel for best results. After asbestos abatement, this product can serve as sticky and smooth surface to glue brittle fibres of asbestos. It is recommended to use this product on tarp to make sure no fibers are released once the job is done and one must pack up. Its fireproof property preps the surfaces for new thermal insulation other than asbestos (for locations where temperature won’t exceed 121°C or 250°F).
To use this product as a fireproof agent, it must be applied accordingly to manufacturer’s concentrations. Please refer to the technical data sheet for these specifications
That product was not design to always exposed, for example on floors. It may nontheless be spread under the floor as long as the composition of the glue or cement used is compatible.
For application of CP-240 as a post-removal lockdown encapsulant I would suggest starting with a 0.015” orifice airless spray tip in a 8 to 12” fan pattern. These would typically be tips numbered 415, 515 or 615. Increasing the orifice size to 0.017” would increase the amount of product applied and allow for faster application if the workers can keep up. Going to a 0.013” tip would allow for less applied product, but may require longer time to apply product. The actual job conditions, worker experience and porosity of the substrate could all affect the best choice for tip size.
