Asbestos Testing in Fibrous Glass


Asbestos Testing in Fibrous Glass


Asbestos in fibrous glass refers to the presence of asbestos fibers within fiberglass or fibrous glass materials. Fibrous glass, commonly known as fiberglass, is a type of material made from fine fibers of glass. It is commonly used in insulation, construction, and various other applications due to its excellent thermal and acoustic properties.

However, older versions of fiberglass products were often manufactured with the addition of asbestos. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber that was once widely used in various industries for its heat resistance, durability, and insulating properties.

When asbestos fibers are embedded or mixed with fibrous glass materials, there is a risk that these fibers can be released into the air if the material is disturbed or damaged. This release of asbestos fibers can occur during activities such as cutting, drilling, sanding, or demolition, leading to their inhalation by individuals in the vicinity.
