Standard Test Method for Classification of Asbestos by Quebec Standard Test


1.1 This test method covers a procedure for dry classification of chrysotile asbestos fiber by length distribution.

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The equivalent SI units may be approximate.

1.3 Warning- Breathing of asbestos dust is hazardous. Asbestos and asbestos products present demonstrated health risks for users and for those with whom they come into contact. In addition to other precautions, when working with asbestos-cement products, minimize the dust that results. For information on the safe use of chrysoltile asbestos, refer to "Safe Use of Chrysotile Asbestos: A Manual on Preventive and Control Measures."

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. See for a specific hazard warning.
