In urgent cases, a phone call is all it takes to obtain an express analysis from our asbestos laboratories. If required, we can provide support with a competent employee according to TRGS 519 No. 2.7. Appendix 3.
Overview of our analyses
Asbestos incl. carcinogenicity index
Asbestos and artificial mineral fibresOur central environmental laboratory in Bruckberg has its own fibre lab, where analyses are performed on samples of material, raw material, dust, surfaces and ambient air for asbestos and types of asbestos, as well as the bonded form. In samples of material, artificial mineral fibres and the carcinogenicity index can also be determined. Tests are conducted using a high-tech scanning electron microscope. The video print and EDXA spectrum can be delivered along with the results, upon request. With advance warning, express analysis will be performed without a surcharge. Our central environmental laboratory in Deventer uses light microscopes to analyse samples of soil/building materials and sludge for asbestos.
Sealants - carpet adhesives - solid paint residues
Sealants/carpet adhesives / /solid paint residuesGrouts and sealants, as building pollutants, are primarily tested for polychlorinated biphenyls. A special sample preparation is necessary for this purpose, which can of course be arranged by AGROLAB.
Carpet adhesives are analysed for, amongst others, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and solvents.
Concerning analysis of solid paint residues and coatings for metal (e.g. lead), please check with the laboratory on the minimum sample quantity required.
Keeping an eye on time and money
Whether asbestos in the gym or paint residues in the nursery: building pollutants are a risk, in terms of both health and costs. Rapid and reliable results, as guaranteed by the AGROLAB GROUP, are indispensable. For time is money, and at worst the building work will come to a standstill.
