NIOSH 5042

BENZENE-SOLUBLE FRACTION AND TOTAL PARTICULATE (Asphalt fume)

This method uses gravimetric techniques to determine the determines the concentrations of total particulate and the soluble fraction of the total particulate to which a worker is exposed. Therefore, for each sample matrix collected other than asphalt fume, a surrogate standard must be selected and spiked onto sampling media. Note precaution to prepare samples and standards in a well-ventilated hood and avoid skin contact. The total particulate portion of this method is based on NMAM 0500.

Analysis Type (Application Method): Gravimetric
