Meaning of asbestos Asbestos – unquenchable or inextinguishable, a set of occurring silicate minerals exploited commercially for their desirable physical properties, it contains of their fibrous crystals
Asbestos became increasingly popular among manufactures and builders in the late 19th century because of its sound absorption. When asbestos is needed for its resistance to fire in heat, the fibers are often mixed with cement or woven in to fabric or mats are in building for its flame-retardant and insulating properties, flexibility are resistance to chemicals History
In my opinion, asbestos needs to be ban, because it contains many chemicals that can cause serious illness, including malignant lung cancer and more likely cause health problems.
And I believe that certain types of cancer are result of inhaling burned asbestos fibers released in to the air during the use of these products.
The asbestos content of a given product is not necessarily the sole criterion of that products relative health risk. A health risk occurs when asbestos fibers become airborne and can then be inhaled.
Free – form asbestos is that which not bound or otherwise waked-in to a product, and it is also be released into the air when the dry form of patching compound is mixed with water prior to use. On the other side asbestos is very useful to us, because it helps us in many things. But I prepared that to ban asbestos, because I don’t want to take the risk.
There are so many artificial materials now that can replaced asbestos. We are now in modern technology so it is not impossible to survive without asbestos.
