NATA Grants Accreditation to Airsafe For Lead Paint Testing

AIRSAFE is the first laboratory in Australia to become NATA accredited to perform paint analysis for elevated levels of lead using our Portable XRF analysis and our validated in-house method.

XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique used to determine the elemental composition of materials.

NATA accreditation provides that confidence. Being a NATA accredited facility builds credibility in an organisation’s products and services. Overall, accreditation creates confidence by providing a structured and reliable framework for the quality of results ensuring their traceability, comparability and validity.

This in-situ­ analysis is used to obtain qualitative data to assist decisions on a further sampling strategy. Airsafe can do this using our validated operating procedures and instrument set-up (often described as a ‘calibration’ or ‘calibration check’ in the manufacturer’s literature) subject to limitations.

Lead is an accumulative poison that can be inhaled or swallowed when a process produces lead dust, fumes, or mist. Lead can be found in a wide range of industrial and consumer products. Dust and flakes from lead paint are the most common sources of lead exposure.

Benefits of XRF testing

  • Speed: Portable XRF analysers enable quick decisions and give lab-quality results in seconds.
  • Real-Time Reporting: Field analyses enable faster delineation of target areas.
  • Increased Sample Density: Running more samples in the field allows for finer grid resolution and a more comprehensive picture.
  • Portability: The analysers are lightweight, rugged, and can be operated in the field anytime, anywhere.
  • Accuracy with or without sample preparation: Handheld XRF analysers are designed for simple point-and-shoot operation.

On-site testing via XRF is non-destructive, saves time and allows us to test a greater volume.
