Asbestos (“asbestos”) is a group of pharmaceutical metamorphic minerals. This name comes from its use in the wick light; because of the flame retardant she has used in many applications.
However, inhalation of some types of asbestos fibers can cause various diseases, including cancer, and therefore most use of asbestos has been banned in many countries. Fiberglass is a suitable replacement of asbestos for heat insulation and ceramic fiber weaving as well or better as a high-temperature electrical conductor insulator.
Between 1945 and 1980, asbestos materials were often used in the construction industry in Australia. Over time, the public began to realize that this material was very toxic, and its use was reduced, until it was banned completely since 31 December 2003. However, there are still many at risk of dangerous diseases associated asbestos, especially the construction workers.
Asbestos ingredients are highly toxic and can lead to a number of lung diseases, which can be deadly.
Although it has been banned in Australia, there are likely to be a number of people suffering from asbestos-related lung diseases, especially among home construction workers.
Asbestos is a group of natural minerals made from crystals that are very small and fibrous, including chrysotile, amosite and crocidolite. Asbestos comes from underground.
A few decades ago in Australia, asbestos was used for various construction purposes, such as for making fireproof buildings, and also used in roofing.
