Hello,

A lot will depend on what the purpose of the twine is. I would imagine that the twine is just there to hold the MMMF mat together and is not providing any insulation properties? If that is the case then I would imagine that it would be considered similarly to asbestos paper found beneath MMMF insulation on pipework. In those situations the advice from HSE as part of the ALG TWG (as it was at the time) and included within one of the groups appendix documents, was that the paper was not providing insulation but was there as a vapour barrier. As such it was not deemed to be Licensed work. I would imagine this will be the same.
