What we look for during Botley Asbestos Bulk Sample Analysis
In the United Kingdom, the three most common forms of asbestos are Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue). They are found in common building materials such as insulation board panels, bonded cements, gaskets, insulation, textured coatings and vinyl flooring.
The test is qualitative, which means that we are unable to give an estimate of the amount of asbestos in the sample.
How is Botley asbestos detected?
Identification is made using polarised light microscopy and phase contrast dissection staining microscopy.
Samples can be delivered to our laboratory near Botley, or collected by our Asbestos Bulk Sample Analysis expert analysts.
