To encapsulate the existing VAF and create a level surface, QUIKRETE Fast Setting Self Leveling Floor Resurfacer #1249-51 would be the most appropriate product. It would require priming with QUIKRETE Concrete Bonding Adhesive #9902 diluted per instructions, installing a metal lath for a mechanical bond, and creating a form to ensure that material completely encapsulates the VAF. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment when working around the VAF, including a respirator designed for asbestos abatement. QUIKRETE Fast Setting Self Leveling Floor Resurfacer can be applied in thicknesses from featheredge to 1”, with ¼” minimum required for heavy traffic areas. Check local codes to verify thickness requirements for encapsulating asbestos. For areas deeper than 1”, apply in layers no greater than 1”, and prime between layers with the diluted QUIKRETE Concrete Bonding Adhesive. Alternately, QUIKRETE Fast Setting Self Leveling Floor Resurfacer may be extended up to 50% with (-3/8”) pea gravel in areas deeper than 1". For best results when using extended material, apply a final ¼” to 1” layer without extension. Please contact the QUIKRETE Technical Center at 1-800-282-5828 to discuss further.
