Asbestos by TEM
Sampling & Analysis

Asbestos is a white, greenish, blue, or gray-green fibrous, odorless solid.  It has been in use for over 6000 years in weaving, when its fire-retardant properties were first discovered.  At the end of the 19th century, it was used in a number of products such as insulation on electric wiring, road surfaces, flooring, home heat duct insulation, automobile brake linings, cement, and heat-resistant packaging materials.  When mined or broken down, the fibers can enter the body through inhalation and over prolonged exposure can cause lung cancer. Short-term exposure can cause difficult or restricted breathing.  Asbestos can also irritate the eyes and skin.

Please send, under separate cover, a sample (bulk) of your particular solvent for use as a reference standard. The bulk sample will be charged the analysis price. Additional analyses and fees may be required to determine the DE for results that do not match a common standard.
:
Reported results reflect elemental analysis of the requested metals. Certain compounds may not be solubilized during digestion, resulting in data that may be biased low.
:
Analyte is referenced in the published method. If more than one published method is cited, the analyte is referenced in at least one of the methods.
