ASTM D1918 – Standard Test Method for Asbestos Content of Asbestos Textiles
This test method covers the determination of the asbestos content of untreated chrysotile asbestos textile materials which are usually blends of asbestos and organic fibers. This test method is also applicable to treated asbestos textile materials provided the treatment can be completely removed prior to testing.
This test method is limited to those asbestos textile materials in which asbestos is the only inorganic fiber present, or in which any other inorganic fiber or wire used as reinforcement can be removed prior to testing.
If carbonates are present, a correction is made for the loss on ignition in the calculation for asbestos content.
