Vector1 Asbestos and Vermiculite Removal Calgary, Alberta

Business Description
Vermiculite is a mica-like mineral mined around the world and used in a variety of commercial and consumer products because it is fire-resistant and has good insulation qualities. Of concern is vermiculite ore produced by
the Libby Mine in Montana from the 1920’s to 1990. It was sold as Zonolite® Attic Insulation and possibly other brands in Canada during that time. Vermiculite from the Libby Mine may contain amphibole asbestos. The Libby Mine supplied the majority of the world market in vermiculite-based insulation.

Products made from vermiculite ore produced by the Libby Mine were not widely used after the mid-1980’s and have not been on the market in Canada since 1990. Not all vermiculite produced before 1990 contains
amphibole asbestos fibres. However, to be safe and in the absence of evidence to the contrary, it is reasonable
to assume that if your building has older vermiculite-based insulation, it may contain some amphibole asbestos.
