I have a Roofing Project coming up in London which involves a lot of remedial work to a Loft Conversion done in the early 1990,s.
The client tells me that the Architect was a Kiwi and for the flat Dormer Roof ,he specified a material Called Nuralite.
It is no longer manufactured or used in England and the only references that I can find to it online just say that it is Bitumen impregnated asbestos .
Apparently New Zealand is the only place where it was/is ? in common use.
Does anyone know how it is fixed down,or taken up?
I will need to get an Asbestos Removal Contractor in and need to give him a heads up so that we can work out probable costs.
If anyone one or the Bored knows,or can phone a friend ,so to speak,it would be appreciated.
Cheers.

There's still a company called Nuraltie in NZ which is a torch on product. If its torch on it might be horrible to remove sorry.

It sounds similar to Butynol which is used here a lot.

It's a roll of thin rubber that is glued over existing structures to isolate from water and weather. No idea about the asbestos part.

Contact adhesive is used, and I can tell you it sticks like shit to a blanket. Basically the same system as vulcanising an inner tube on a bicycle puncture.

Edit: I just read your post properly and you asked about removal. Apart from mechanically shaving it off and dissolving the adhesive, I would suggest just making the edges sound, key it off and just cover it.
