FREE WEBINAR: Vermiculite Testing Options

Join Our FREE Webinar – Hosted by EMSL Analytical, Inc.
Webinar Asbestos Analysis of Vermiculite & Vermiculite Containing Materials

Vermiculite is a problem matrix for asbestos analysis.  Large particle size, sample heterogeneity and the presence of non-regulated amphiboles are just some of the issues associated with this material.  There are numerous analytical approaches available that try to address as many of these issues as possible.  Depending on the specific field scenario and reporting requirements, each method has its own set of strengths and weaknesses. Knowing the issues surrounding vermiculite and having a basic knowledge of the analytical choices will aid viewer in method selection.  Working closely with the lab throughout the project will ensure quality results that have maximum value to the end user.
