Asbestos Testing

Detect the presence of asbestos in your products

WHAT IS ASBESTOS TESTING?

Asbestos has been used commonly in everyday products including homes, schools, buildings, and industrial locations due to its fibre strength and heat resistant properties. However, when asbestos- containing materials are damaged, the inhalation of asbestos fibres can cause serious illnesses such as lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis.

In order to improve the health and safety of the general public, many countries have banned the use of asbestos in repair, renovation and refurbishment activities. The extraction, manufacture and processing of asbestos products are also banned. Asbestos may also be found in specific materials used in industries such as construction, shipbuilding, chemical and automobiles
