Supalux – all that glitters is not asbestos free!
Supalux is the trade name of one type insulating board that was meant to be an asbestos free alternative product to asbestolux.

The material had the usual appearance of Supalux with a high Mica content but also contained levels of Amosite.  The picture below was taken through the stereo microscope which shows the Mica and the Amosite fibre, which is clearly within the matrix of the material and not from a cross contamination from sampling. The Amosite is located just below the centre to the right of the sample.
