Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate material and is often used as a building material for its excellent resistance to acid and heat. However, the material is known to cause adverse health effects and hence has progressively been banned. Following the revision of Japan's Ordinance on Prevention of Asbestos Hazards and Industrial Safety and Health Act enforcement ordinance in 2006, the proposed limit value for asbestos content was made more rigorous. As a result, in any product, the present content by weight of asbestos is stipulated to be below 0.1%.This article shows an example of rapid quantitative analysis of the chrysotile (a type of asbestos) using the new high-speed, wide-range detector OneSight.
