Asbestos Identification Laboratory specializes in analyzing bulk building materials for the presence of asbestos.

Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals exploited commercially for the desirable physical properties. These properties include high thermal stability, excellent tensile strength, resistance to chemical attack, good thermal and electrical resistance and ability to be subdivided into fine fibers. These unique properties make asbestos useful as insulation, roofing and flooring, reinforcing additions to cement, mortars,coatings and other building materials.

If products containing asbestos are disturbed, tiny asbestos fibers are released into the air. When asbestos fibers are breathed in, they may get trapped in the lungs and remained there for a long time. Over time these fibers can accumulate and cause scarring and inflammation which can affect breathing and lead to serious health problems.

Asbestos has been classified as a known human carcinogen (a substance that causes cancer) by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, the EPA, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
