Asbestos analysis of plasters, Artex, trowelled materials and paintings

Application, products

  • Interior and outdoor areas of buildings
  • Predominantly low contents of asbestos
  • Hidden installation underneath asbestos-free products
  • In the case of Artex also visible installation

Types of asbestos

  • Chrysotile, anthophyllite, actinolite- tremolite

Asbestos content

  • Traces up to several per cent

SBH-method

 

The SBH-method is a procedure developed by the  Schulbau Hamburg eand has been successfully implemented to analyse potentially asbestos-containing plasters and fillers.
Single or mixed samples are prepared by ashing at 400° C and acid treatment in order to concentrate the asbestos content in the sample.

 

In July, 2015 the SBH-method was accounted for and described in the draft of the recast of guideline VDI 3866. It was enlarged upon in the discussion paper Diskussionspapier des VDI und Gesamtverband Schadstoffsanierung e.V. zu Erkundung, Bewertung und Sanierung asbesthaltiger Putze, Spachtelmassen und Fliesenkleber in Gebäuden von Juni 2015 (“On exploration, evaluation and restructuring of asbestos-containing plasters, fillers and tile adhesives in buildings”, published 2015 by VDI and Gesamtverband Schadstoffsanierung e.V.).

 

We have been analysing critical materials for years using this preparation and examination method and have gained plenty of experience.
