Asbestos and Asbestos Containing Materials


Analitica performs mineralogical and crystallographical analyses by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) in order to identify the occurence of asbestos minerals in bulk samples and in asbestos containing materials (ACM) such as cement-asbestos, Ethernit, paper-asbestos, linoleum etc.

Asbestos and asbestos containing materials have been used for a long time as insulators and fireproofing construction materials, brakes, paper, textile materials etc.. Because of the well-known cancerous effects, today, the production and the storage of asbestos is forbidden and the careful identification is of primary importance.

Analytical techniques implemented by Analitica lab are capable to identify all asbestos minerals: chrysotile, riebeckite-crocidolite, amosite (grunerite-cummingtonite) antofillite, actinolite-tremolite.

Analitica lab has obtained the professional qualification from Italian Health Minister to perform both qualitative and quantitative analysis (DM 6-9-1994) on asbestos minerals and asbestos containing materials by X-Ray Diffraction.
