Asbestos Testing in building material such as fibro (Laboratories in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, Au
Envirolab offers an asbestos testing service that allows you to discover whether asbestos is present in any suspected materials such as fibro, eaves, corrugated sheeting and vinyl. This service is open to commercial and domestic customers.
Please note that there are precautions that you should take before attempting to sample any material that is suspected of containing asbestos, as certain materials will release asbestos fibres into the air when broken or disturbed.
If the material you are considering sampling looks like a sprayed finish, particularly if it is insulating material on pipework, boilers or ceilings, do not sample this yourself!
Special precautions are required for sampling this material. Disturbing lagging that contains asbestos is extremely dangerous and should only be carried by qualified individuals.
The instructions below should be considered the minimum precautions you should take when sampling material suspected of containing asbestos. If in doubt, please contact us.

Results will be reported within 2 working days. Please contact us if you wish to have the results faster than this. The fastest time is 2-3 hours however this will attract a surcharge.
You will be given a certificate that identifies whether asbestos is present in the sample and also identifying the type of asbestos that's present.
