Asbestos, Lead-based Paint, Silica, Mold, MDF and Metal Swarf*
Industrial DustBubbles combined with a wetting agent applied inside the enclosure ;captures all (when used correctly) the debris, there is no further equipment or decontamination necessary*.

Transparent, Flexible & Bands Free
All DustBubbles are transparent so you can always see where you are drilling. The flexible material allows drilling at an angle or in restrictive spaces and DustBubbles stick to the wall surface so they are hands free for safer drilling.

Tough and Heat Resistant
DIY DustBubbles are available for ‘Wallpaper & Painted Walls’, ‘Kitchen & Bathroom Tiles’ and ‘Wood (including MDF), Plaster (or Drywall) & Untreated Surfaces’. For non-contamination issue maintenance work these offer a hugely cost effective protection against dust for general health and safety protection and reduce or eliminate clean up time.

The Glue
The adhesive on a Dustbubble has a difficult job to do. Firstly it must stick the DustBubble to any wall and make an airtight seal. It must be strong enough to stick to untreated or greasy walls, wood or porous surfaces whilst it must also be gentle enough not to rip wallpaper or fresh paint. Just as tape manufacturers sell many hundreds of varieties of tape, then there will eventually be many varieties of DustBubbles.
*Drilling with the Contamination Control DustBubble Kit is only recommended as part of an approved health and safety procedure and by an insured operator.

Top Tips for Using DustBubbles

Our DustBubbles for Wallpaper and Painted Walls a gentle adhesive to ensure the wall surface is not marked around the hole drilled. The DustBubbles for Wood, Plaster and Untreated Surfaces use a strong adhesive for porous or dusty surfaces. Care must be taken when using these especially when removing it from the wall as the strong adhesive can rip the bubble is handles carelessly. DustBubble for Kitchen and Bathroom Tiles has a thicker tissue based adhesive with non slip properties to help steady the drill bit, avoiding expensive accidents. The first top tip is to always use the appropriate DustBubble for the wall surface and if possible test in a discreet place first.

The Scrunch
Dustbubbles are manufactured from extremely light materials which can cause static cling, the handles can sometimes stick to the body.
Top tip number 2 is to rub the Dustbubble between two fingers to loosen up the plastic from the handle. This makes it easier to pull open once it is stuck to the wall.

We do say very clearly on the packet but its worth repeating.
Top tip number 3 is always keep the drill bit spinning when pulling out of the DustBubble.

The Wallplug
Do not remove the DustBubble the moment you finish drilling
Top tip number 4 is to push a wallplug into the hole whilst the DustBubble is still attached, this stops any dust that might be sitting inside the wall from falling out. Make sure the wall plug is firmly in place inside the hole.

The Pinch
Be gentle, the DustBubble is made from light plastic so it will not withstand rough treatment after it has been drilled through. This especially applies to the DustBubbles for Wood, Plaster and Untreated Surfaces which use a very strong adhesive.
Top tip number 5 is to wrap your fingers around the DustBubble and pinch the bubble towards the hole. Then gently pull directly off the wall.
