Definitions for "encapsulant"
a coating that can seal and bind asbestos fibers, rendering them
a special liquid coating that provides a long lasting, effective barrier over lead paint
Liquid substances that are applied to asbestos-containing material(ACMS) to prevent the escape of fibers. Bridging encapsulants form a coating over the ACM surface. Penetrating encapsulants soak into the ACMs to bind the components together. Both types are frequently used together. Removal encapsulants moisten and adhere to the ACMs being removed.
Description related to the way dual-wall tubing products and precoated molded parts melt and flow when heated, filling any void in the area being covered. Unlike an adhesive, an encapsulant does not form a mechanical bond to the substrate.
