Things To Know About Asbestos
Asbestos is a material that is naturally occurring in the environment and is a collective name used to refer to various fibrous silicate compounds. The use of asbestos began almost 4000 years ago but it was only in late 19th century that the large scale use of asbestos began in earnest due to the industrial revolution and the massive trends towards modern buildings.
Asbestos was used widely because of its highly desirable properties that were appealing to many builders. It has great absorption, good tensile strength, and excellent resistance to electricity and chemicals as well as good affordability. Thanks to its flexibility, asbestos can be easily spun into fabrics and fibres. It is the only naturally occurring mineral that possesses that property. Let’s take a look further why you need an asbestos testing service.
Asbestos Can Cause Health Hazards
There has never been a history of asbestos mining in Gold Coast but there has been a general use of the material in building, manufacturing, and transportation and this has increased the incidences of exposure.
“There can be a latent period that lasts anywhere from 20 to 30 years after the exposure before the development of asbestos-related disease.” – Safe Work Australia
Many residents of Queensland who have had some kind of exposure could be looking for as long as three decades before a possible diagnosis with the various asbestos-related conditions such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. Asbestos has been applied in a variety of structures and products in Queensland and it is still finding modern applications in various areas of manufacturing, engineering, and processing amongst others.
Some Materials May Still Contain Asbestos
There has been a concerted effort by the Australian government, through regulation and partnership with industry stakeholders, to get rid of asbestos materials altogether. For example, asbestos products were gradually phased out from production in the 80s. Corrugated products were also phased out in the year 1985.
Other asbestos-based products that have since been phased out include asbestos brake pads and linings. Thanks to strict government regulation, new materials can no longer contain asbestos. However, some of the older structures might still contain asbestos that can be a serious risk to your health. These include the following:
- Asbestos is used in a variety of construction and engineering materials including chemical tanks, casings, sewage piping, electrical switchboards, industrial building materials, residential building materials, fire protection materials and electrical wires amongst others.
- It is applied in some friction materials in the automotive industry such as clutch facings and brake linings for cars.
- There are asbestos textile products that are put in various uses such as heaters and roofing materials.
- There is a vast array of products that contain asbestos paper. These include electrical wire insulation, heat insulation products, heat protective mats and table pads amongst others.
- Additional products that might contain asbestos materials include sealants, coatings, tiles and gaskets amongst others.
When You Need To Renovate Or Demolish A Building
Any renovation project involving cutting through asbestos roofing products or cement sheeting, requires a work license from the appropriate authority. The law mandates an assessment to verify that asbestos is not present in a building that will be renovated or demolished.

Our team of professionals work with modern equipment to perform quantification analysis from samples. We may use Stereo Microscope Analysis (SMA) and Polarised Light Microscopy (PLM) techniques to ensure quality.
- PLM is the most common microscopic analysis method used to differentiate asbestos and non-asbestos particles from a sample.
- SMA is another technique that is often used to identify asbestos from a bulk material.
This technique can identify different types of asbestos, such as friable or non-friable asbestos, by examining their morphology. By employing these two methods, our Asbestos Testing Gold Coast Team are ensuring high-quality and satisfactory results for you.

Decontamination is critical to health and safety at hazardous sampling sites. We will determine appropriate clean-up methods. Our team of specialists will decontaminate all equipment used on site to minimise the transfer of harmful materials to clean areas.

Our Asbestos Testing Gold Coast Team offer services required to decontaminate all equipment and sampling area to satisfy local and national requirements.
The decontamination process can include:
- Determine the most proper decontamination procedure considering time factors, economic issues, and legal requirements.

- Air monitoring to ensure that the contaminated area is safe for reoccupation.
