Replacing asbestos

To help UK industry prepare for a law that could ban the use of asbestos-based materials, sealing technology company, James Walker, has launched Mission-XA/2, where XA is the company’s code for non-asbestos.

Mission-XA/2 provides free on-site training in the different installation techniques for non-asbestos flat gaskets, compression packings and spiral wound gaskets, together with advice on the correct disposal of asbestos products, using the company’s converted on-site training vehicle.

This mobile centre contains a lecture theatre with audio visual aids, fitting rigs for hands-on training, and a wide selection of non-asbestos products. Free training videos are also available.
