Where asbestos can occur
Asbestos can be found in about 3,000 products and here is a list of places and materials.
In the list, we take into account the connection that exists when our laboratory receives material for asbestos analysis, the list can not be considered complete but is a living document.
Asbestos is found in building facades and roofs, but also occurs inside buildings. In fire-damaged buildings, care should be taken as asbestos (if any) may have been released.
