Asbestos Testing – DIY Asbestos Testing Kit

Asbestos cannot be identified by a visual inspection.  All suspect Asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) must be tested in a NATA Asbestos laboratory to confirm the material contains Asbestos.  Enviroscience offers an Asbestos testing service for commercial clients and a downloadable Asbestos test kit which is also an Asbestos home test kit.  The Asbestos test kit is developed and prepared by an Occupational Hygienist and Licenced Asbestos Assessor.  Unlike Asbestos testing kits from Bunnings and Mitre10, it is free to download.

Download our ASBESTOS TEST KIT, with an easy checklist for preparing a sample for Asbestos testing.  We offer an Asbestos testing kits with a fast 24 hour turnaround from sample receipt, postage free (Australia only) and confidential result emailed quickly.

This service is not available in the ACT or for friable (loose) Asbestos where Asbestos sampling is required to be undertaken by a licensed Asbestos assessor. 

What products may contain Asbestos?

Until the mid-1980s, Asbestos was widely used in a range of commercial and home building materials.  Common names for some Asbestos products are ‘fibro’, ‘Asbestos cement’, ‘AC sheeting’, ‘Asbestos cement sheet’, ‘Asbestos cement moulded products’ (including commonly used Asbestos concrete pipes), ‘bitumen-based water proofing ‘- commonly on pipes and ‘Asbestos floor tiles’.  This is not an exhaustive list.

The DIY Asbestos test kit can be downloaded here.  This kit details the safety equipment required and procedures required to sample bonded or non-friable Asbestos safely and instructions as to how to seal the sample area to ensure no contamination or exposure occurs.
