Client Address:

Area(s) Excluded:


Waltham Chase village Hall

Winchester Road Hants SO322LX

All areas of the above named property were subjected to survey.

Type of Survey: Refurbishment Survey Standard HSG

264 Sampling, Identification and Assessment, (see Additional Information section for definition)

Purpose, Aims and Objectives:

This Survey is undertaken to establish

the presence and nature of Asbestos based materials in the area(s) surveyed. Surveying, sampling and assessment of Asbestos containing materials has been carried out in accordance with The Survey Guide HSG 264.

Representative bulk samples were taken from the locations detailed in the following pages of

this report. The bulk samples were taken to our UKAS registered laboratory where they were subject to a careful cleaning procedure involving disintegration of the sample, acid washing, solvent washing, filtration etc., in order to expose fibres in a form suitable for microscopic analysis. Analysis was carried out in accordance with MDHS 77 June 1994 by documented in–house procedures.

TASC 2 cannot accept responsibility for any errors or misinterpretations introduced into

a survey as a result data supplied by other parties.

This survey attempts to identify all asbestos materials within the agreed scope of work as specified. As asbestos can be completely hidden or buried within a structure, TASC

2 cannot accept responsibility for additional materials that may be identified at a later date.

Appendix A Asbestos Materials in Buildings

Asbestos Survey Report


Sprayed coatings applied in the UK were typically a mixture of hydrated asbestos cement containing up to 85% asbestos, mainly amosite but crocidolite and mixtures have been used. Primarily used for anti-condensation and acoustic control and fire protection to structural steelwork. It is a friable material but if in a good condition and unlikely to be disturbed presents no immediate danger; however it is likely to release fibers, if disturbed especially during repair and maintenance work. As it ages the binding medium of sprayed asbestos may degrade with the consequent release of more fibers.

No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Thermal insulation to boilers, vessels, pipe work, valves, pumps etc also known as hand applied lagging. Lagging may have a protective covering of cloth, tape, paper, metal or a surface coating of cement. All types of asbestos may be found in lagging and the content can vary between 15 and 85% asbestos with the protective papers being up to 100% chrysotile. The likelihood of fiber release depends upon its composition, friability and state of repair, but it is particularly susceptible to damage and disturbance through maintenance work or the action of water leaks.

No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Asbestos insulating boards usually contain between 16 to 40% amosite, although boards may be found to contain other types of asbestos and in other quantities. Insulating boards were developed in the 1950s to provide an

economical, lightweight, fire resisting insulating material. As insulation board is semi-compressed it is more likely to release fibers as a result of damage or abrasion. Work on asbestos insulation board can give rise to high levels of asbestos fibre.

No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Asbestos cement products as in roofing sheets, wall cladding, permanent shuttering, flue, rain water and vent pipes generally contain 10 to 15% of asbestos fiber bounded in Portland cement, some flexible boards contain a small proportion of cellulose. All three types of asbestos have been used in the manufacture of asbestos cement. The asbestos fibers in asbestos cement are usually firmly bound in the cement matrix and will be released only if the material is mechanically damaged or as it deteriorates with age. No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Ropes and yarns are

usually high in asbestos content, approaching 100% and all three types of asbestos have been used in their manufacture. They were used as in the pipe lagging process and in pipe jointing and also for packing materials as in heat/fire resistant boiler, oven and flue sealing or anywhere thermal of fire protection was required. The risk of fibre release depends upon the structure of the material; bonded gasket material is unlikely to release asbestos but an unbonded woven material may give rise to high fiber release especially if when damaged or frayed. No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Asbestos Survey Report

Cloth thermal insulation and lagging, including fire resistant blankets, mattresses and protective curtains, gloves, aprons, overalls etc. All types of asbestos have been used in the manufacture but since the mid 60's the majority has been chrysotile, the content of which can be up to 100 %.

No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Millboard, paper and paper products usually have an asbestos content approaching 100% with all three types of asbestos being used in their manufacture. They were used for insulation of electrical equipment and for thermal insulation, Asbestos paper has been used as a laminate for fireproofing to various fiber panels. These materials are on some occasions not well bonded and will release asbestos fibers if subject to abrasion and wear. No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Bitumen felts and coatings may contain asbestos either bound in the bitumen matrix or as an asbestos paper liner. These materials are not likely to

present a hazard during normal installation or use, but should be removed and disposed of in compliance with any regulation applicable.

No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Thermoplastic floor tiles can contain up to 25% asbestos usually chrysotile, PVC vinyl floor tiles and un backed PVC flooring normally 7-10% chrysotile and asbestos paper backed PVC flooring the paper backing may contain up to 100% chrysotile. Fibre release is not normally an issue but may occur when the material is cut or subjected to abrasion.

No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Textured coatings. Decorative coatings on walls and ceilings usually contain 3-5% chrysotile. Fibre release may occur when subjected to abrasion. No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Mastics, sealants, putties and adhesives may contain small amounts of asbestos. The only possible risk is from sanding of hardened material when appropriate precautions should be taken. No materials of this nature were discovered on site

Reinforced plastic and resin composites, used for toilet cisterns, seats, banisters, window seals, lab bench tops, brakes and clutches in machines. The plastics usually contain 1-10% chrysotile and were used in for example car batteries to improve the acid resistance. Resins may contain between 20 and 50% amosite, but because of its composition fiber release is likely to be low, even during cutting. No materials of this nature were discovered on site

The above is not intended to be an exhaustive or definitive list. All materials suspected to consist of or contain asbestos will be inspected, sampled and reported.
