Types of Asbestos Materials

Asbestos is a general name given to several naturally occurring fibrous minerals that have crystallised to form fibres. Asbestos fibres do not dissolve in water or evaporate, they are resistant to heat, fire, chemical and biological degradation and are mechanically strong.

The properties of Asbestos made it an ideal material for use in a number of products, including insulation material for buildings, boilers and pipes; car brakes and floor tiles, insulating board to protect against fire; as well as Asbestos cement for roofing sheets and pipes.

There are a number of different types of Asbestos materials which we can help remove and dispose of, some of which are displayed below.
