Case studies asbestos analysis of different materials

Below you find examples of the analysis of asbestos in a wide range of materials.

This list is not complete. There is a whole range of additional and sometimes quite exotic materials that may contain asbestos like squeeze-type gaskets made of copper, distance pieces taken from double walled flasks like in vacuum flasks, brake linings, small electronic devices, etc.

Please bear in mind, that all listed materials may also occur in asbestos-free forms, for example fiber cements with non-hazardous organic fibres in place of asbestos.

This also means that common asbestos products such as fiber cement have been exposed to weathering since that time, especially on the exterior. What this means for the material and the eventual release of fibers has now been explored by a Norwegian research team [Ervik et al. 2021]. ... read more
