Abstract
An investigation to evaluate possible hazardous exposure to perlite has been made. Perlite is a generic term for naturally occurring siliceous volcanic rock used in insulation. During its processing free silica (7631869), arsenic (7440382), beryllium (7440417) and lead (7439921) may be present. At the time of this evaluation, all breathing zone air samples of these agents were below the laboratory limit of detection.
