Identify asbestos with our asbestos tests for air and materials

Asbestos has been proven to be harmful to your health. Inhaling asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis, a chronic lung condition. Hence, the manufacture and use of asbestos have been banned since the 1990s. However, asbestos was widely used for insulation and in materials such as Artex in buildings constructed before this ban. Asbestos is often found in fibre cement cladding, roof tiles, corrugated sheets and flooring. Sprayed asbestos and asbestos cement are also commonly used around the house. But how can you identify asbestos? Even for professionals, the harmful substance is hard to identify by sight alone. An asbestos laboratory analysis quickly and comprehensively lets you know if your renovation work could be dangerous to you and your employees.

Asbestos Test - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

WHEN SHOULD YOU TEST FOR ASBESTOS?
Asbestos-containing materials can turn DIY into a hazard. Private consumers should therefore test for asbestos fibres before carring out renovation work on the house. It is even more important for tradespeople to protect themselves with an asbestos test. If renovation work is undertaken on asbestos-containing building materials, there may be legal consequences.
WHAT IS THE ASBESTOS INDOOR AIR TEST FOR DUST SAMPLES?
Our Asbestos Air Test gives you a quick overview and fast assurance. Simply take a dust sample with a piece of tape, which can be done using the detailled instructions included. The particles which stick to the tape will then be examined for asbestos fibres in a laboratory.
WHAT IS THE ASBESTOS MATERIAL TEST FOR STANDARD MATERIALS?
You can test all kinds of materials for asbestos using our Asbestos Material Test. This test is ideal for both private and commercial use. You don't need any specialist knowledge when selecting the material - simply send us your sample and our experts will determine what kind of analysis the required detection limit delivers. Our expert laboratory analyses your sample using the latest SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) technology. Regardless of the asbestos sample you send in, the lab will test it to a detection limit of between 1% and 0.1%.
WHAT IS THE ASBESTOS MATERIAL TEST FOR SPECIAL MATERIALS?
The Asbestos Test for Special Materials analyses your samples for man-made mineral fibres such as slag wool, basalt wool, stone wool and glass wool, as well as for asbestos-containing fibres in materials like Artex, to a detection limit of as low as 0.001%.
How is the asbestos analysis carried out?
