Asbestos in in plastic parts?

Bericht door Ruska Jubileum » 11 dec 2018 09:47

Hi everybody!
My name ist Christian and I have a Ruska Buggy. Somebody made me concerned about the possibility of asbestos being in the polymer parts of the housing. I did not find any hints about this online. Maybe one of you can give a hint if that is true or not...
Have a good day!
Christian

Hi Christian. As you might know asbestos was used as an isolation material. Mostly in residential use. As it has been banned for that use, glass fibre was an alternative material used. That can explain some foaks tell u that your tub might contain asbestos.
The most known beach buggy tubs are made out of a polymer resin and fibre glass as binding material.
I don't think you should be concerned that your Buggy tub containes asbestos.
Although glass fibre is a manmade fibre, you should take caution working with it. Whear a breathing protection and eye protection.
Let there be Green
