Vermiculite is a mineral resembling mica found everywhere on the planet and used in a variety of commercial and consumer products because of its insulating and fireproof properties

Some brands of vermiculite are of concern as they contain amphibole asbestos. If your building is insulated with vermiculite, it is reasonable to suspect that it contains amphibole asbestos.

Services ecoPlus provides a complete service of vermiculite sampling and analysis. As asbestos fibres can be airborne when disturbed, specific measures for personal safety must be taken when sampling. For your own safety, we recommend that you use our services for on-site sampling.
