This test method describes the procedure for taking a composite sample or a master composite sample (at the mine, at the factory, or from a consignment) from a lot of commercial milled amphibole fibers, conditioning the sample, and reducing it in quantity so as to provide a series of relatively small test specimens of loose asbestos fiber, each of which may be regarded as representative of the lot.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee C17 on Fiber-Reinforced Cement Products, this test method was withdrawn in November 2009 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This test method describes the procedure for taking a composite sample or a master composite sample (at the mine, at the factory, or from a consignment) from a lot of commercial milled amphibole fibers, conditioning the sample, and reducing it in quantity so as to provide a series of relatively small test specimens of loose asbestos fiber, each of which may be regarded as representative of the lot. (See for sampling strategy.)
1.2 This test method is suitable for taking test specimens of amphibole asbestos for the following test methods: C 1119, C 1120, C 1121, C 1122, C 1123, C 1124, C 1125, C 1162, D 1118, D 2589, D 2752, D 2947, D 2985, D 2987, D 3639, D 3752, and D 3880.
1.3 For sampling chrysotile asbestos, use Method D 2590.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
