Does all asbestos look the same?
Asbestos containing materials can be found in many guises.
An asbestos containing material is any product that has 1% or more of asbestos within it. However, due to the range of products asbestos was used in, it can vary in how it looks. The HSE has a good page of examples showing what it can look like but if you are unsure, get in contact with us and we can test the materials for asbestos fibres.
Some of the places that we commonly find asbestos when carrying out an asbestos survey include -
- Lagging on boilers and pipes
- Insulation board and loose fill insulation
- Asbestos cement
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Panels in windows and doors
