What is asbestos and where is it found?

 Asbestos occurring mineral rock. It is made of fibres so thin that they are invisible to the unaided eye.
 

Why was asbestos used?

 Asbestos provided a range of benefits like no other single product
 
  • Strength
  • Weight
  • Fire resistance
  • Insulation
 

There are two main forms of asbestos: Friable and non-friable?

 
Non-friable – Bonded in a matrix with other materials within a product. Such as cement, vinyl or other materials which were used in households products. especially in older houses. In this form, it is non friable – less likely to break into pieces.
 
Friable – Unbonded products are those which can be crushed under hand pressure. releasing fibres. This form was used as lagging or insulation – in this form it is friable and can give off dust.
 
Even bonded asbestos can release fibres as it ages. In particular those areas exposed to weathered can degrade.
 

Asbestos was used in many products such as:

  •  Asbestos cement sheeting is also known as fibro. Super six or super eight) in fencing, roof sheets, ceilings and walls.
  • External guttering and downpipe and vent pipes
  • Backing to electrical switchboards in a black product known as zelemite
  • Vinyl sheeting and vinyl tiles used as flooring
  • Insulations to heater banks, air conditioning ducting and pipes
  • Gaskets to pipes and pipe joins
  • Certain paints will contain asbestos fibres such as Galbestos
  • Mastics and glues behind wall tiles and vinyl
  • Waterproofing in windows
  • Roof tiles

    Handybin FAQs
    Where else can asbestos be identified?
     
    It pays to be safe when handling asbestos materials. With the rise of DIY renovations there is a need for more education on the topic. For many years asbestos was in a wide range of products. Most people were aware of it in housing as walls sheets and roofing. Even a brick veneer house may have. Asbestos sheets were found in the soffit or in wet areas such as the bathrooms or kitchen areas. Asbestos materials were also used in pool linings, and in the backing of Linoleum. It was also used in insulating electrical components and pipework. Loose fill materials used in roof insulation also contained asbestos. So once again the moral is ‘Be wise, Be Safe & Test. Better to assume it is than run the risk.
