PWA is a ready-to-use, colorless wetting agent/surfactant.
It provides powerful wetting, penetrating and coalescing of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) to permit handling and removal of these materials under damp, dust-free conditions.
Removing friable (ACM) can send clouds of fibers and dust billowing into the workplace. Spraying with PWA eliminates the hazard by wetting the ACM and making it safe to handle.
A surface-treated PWA stays wet at least 6 times longer than surfaces treated with simple detergent solutions. PWA chemically advanced wetting/penetrating/binding action saturates the entire mass of ACM, making it easy to scrape and bag the damp ACM without releasing dangerous asbestos fibers. PWA is a non-flammable, water-based, non-toxic liquid that will not corrode aluminum components of spray equipment.
PWA – Least we not forget the abatement industry! PWA is 100 percent, botanical organic wetting agent. It is light blue, has a light licorice fragrance and is a dust suppression product to be used in critical areas like hospitals and grinding operations where fibers or dust are not an option! Additionally, PWA is used to foam onto surfaces to assist in the removal of asbestos-containing materials. Just spray and foam on to old popcorn ceiling texture or stippled surfacing and it will fall away with a few gentle pokes!
