Mirror Mastic Abatement
Up until the 1980s, manufacturers mixed asbestos into many types of mastics, cements and sealants and for use in construction. Dried-out asbestos adhesives remain in millions of old structures, which can release toxic fibers when disturbed by damage or renovation work. That was the case for ARC Dallas who abated 900 square feet of mirror mastic in a commercial building near White Rock Lake. For this job, work areas required that they be placed under mini enclosure containments. Five ARC workers completed the four-figure job in three days.
