The following query was received by a Norac Member:
What material do they class the “Asbestos fibre packing to the down pipes” as. We currently class it as thermal as nearest relevant product type. It often contains amosite and or chrysotile mixed with a soft cement based filler and non-asbestos string is a lot of the time. We find it a lot in domestic and commercial properties. HSG 264 mentions rope/textile but it’s never rope/textile when we find it its always this material. Photos attached.
The response can be seen within the attached document.
