Vermiculite and Asbestos
    #3249718 - 10/13/04 12:11 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

so I went out and bought some  whitney farms  brand vermiculite and on the back there's a warning about possible asbestos fibers. not too cool with that...

also, I'm intending to use this verm for the double casing tek, but it's kind of coarse. the average piece size is about 4mm long and a couple mm thick. is this okay? thanks for your help  :thumbup:

hey there, i happen to be a microscopist at an asbestos lab. I have heard of this problem with vermiculite and asbestos, supposedly they are sometimes located in the same mining areas. The fact of the matter is the whole asbestos thing is kind of a scam. yeah if you breathe it in 24/7 like the miners do, 20 years down the line you may get cancer. the trace amounts that might be found in your bag should pose no threats to your health. to be on the safe side wear a dust mask while handling it dry, but once its wet there is no way asbestos fibers could become air born. should be ok...

Seems like there was a serious overreaction to the asbestos/vermiculite thing. In a lot of places it's now difficult to find vermiculite.
