What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring material. It was originally used in building materials for insulation and strengthening purposes until it was discovered to have direct harmful impacts on health and safety. However, asbestos can be harmless if they’re left undisturbed.
Their harmful effects only come into play when its fibres are released into the air. This is generally caused by damage to the asbestos material.
Types of Asbestos
Chrysotile is white asbestos that is commonly found and used in today’s roofs, walls, floors, etc. Automotive manufacturers may also use it in brake linings, gaskets and boiler seals, while other product manufacturers may use it in ducts, appliances, pipes and more.
2. Tremolite and actinolite
Tremolite and actinolite are white, brown, transparent or grey asbestos that can be found as contaminants in chrysolite. They are, therefore, not used commercially.
Anthophyllite is a grey, green or white asbestos found as a contaminant in chrysolite. It is, however, generally used in insulation products, as well as in construction.
Crocidolite is blue asbestos used in spray-on coatings, plastic and cement, as well as to insulate pipes and steam engines.
Amosite is brown asbestos used in cement and to insulate pipes, boards, ceilings and more.
