A research project was conducted by the Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District to determine potential release of asbestos during the removal of vinyl floor tiles (VAT) and mastic adhesive, both of which contained asbestos. Tests were conducted during July and August of 1990 in seven enclosed test areas constructed at Fort Sill, Lawton, Oklahoma. The observations presented were obtained by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) at the USEPA Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory employing a modified AHERA analytical protocol.
