Bunsen Burner Gauze Mats

Date posted

The Hazard

The Ceramic Centre of the gauze mat may contain asbestos, if so, it can release when cracked or worn.

Exposure to asbestos can result in asbestos related diseases.

What to do

Schools with affected gauze mats should bag up any potentially affected mats carefully and safely (wearing a P2 mask and disposable gloves).

Pure Science will contact all schools and will safety dispose of mats and provide a credit for all affected mats purchased.

Where schools are not comfortable handling the identified product or if it is fraying/cracking, schools may wish to organise an asbestos removal contractor.
