Encapsulation refers to the method where using a bonding agent called sealant prevents asbestos fibers from escaping the material and causing harm. The sealant is applied over the surface using airless spray equipment and may require extra testing to ensure the sealant is working properly. Encapsulation should be used in cases where further damage will not occur, but the material must support the weight of the sealant. Encapsulation is not a permanent solution and will need regular check-ups to ensure that the sealant is working over time.
Asbestos enclosure refers to when a physical barrier (such as dry wall) is positioned between where asbestos is present and the rest of the building. If the enclosure is damaged then asbestos may be released into the building.
