1 Loose insulation Bulk loose fill, bulk fibre-filled mattresses, quilts and blankets. Also jiffy bag -type products for sound insulation Bulk loose fill insulation is now rarely found but may be encountered unexpectedly, e.g. DIY lost insulation and fire-stop packing around cables between floors. Mattresses and quilts used for thermal insulation of industrial boilers were filled with loose asbestos. Paper bags/sacks were also loose-filled and used for sound insulation under floors and in walls. Usually pure asbestos except for lining/bag. Mattresses and quilts were usually filled with crocidolite or chrysotile. Acoustic insulation may contain crocidolite or chrysotile. Loose asbestos may readily become airborne if disturbed. If dry, these materials can give rise to high exposures. Covers may deteriorate or be easily damaged by repair work or accidental contact. Sprayed coatings Dry applied, wet applied and trowelled finish Thermal and anticondensation insulation on underside of roofs and sometimes sides of industrial buildings and warehouses. Acoustic insulation in theatres, halls etc. Fire protection on steel and reinforced concrete beams/columns and on underside of floors. Over-spray of target area is common. Sprayed coatings usually 55%-85% asbestos with a Portland cement binder. Crocidolite was the major type until Mixture of types including crocidolite until mid Asbestos spray applications were used up to The surface hardness, texture and ease of fibre release will vary significantly depending on a number of factors. Sprays have a high potential for fibre release if unsealed, particularly if knocked or the surface is abraded or delaminates from the underlying surface. Dust released may then accumulate on false ceilings, wiring and ventilation systems. Limpet (also used for non-asbestos sprays).
2 Thermal insulation Hand-applied thermal lagging, pipe and boiler lagging, preformed pipe sections, slabs, blocks. Also tape, rope, corrugated paper, quilts, felts, and blankets Thermal insulation of pipes, boilers, pressure vessels, calorifiers etc. All types of asbestos have been used. Crocidolite used in lagging until Amosite was phased out by the manufacturers during the 1970s. Content varies 6-85%. Various ad hoc mixtures were hand-applied on joints and bends and pipe runs. Pre-formed sections were widely used, e.g. 85% magnesia contained 15% amosite, Caposil calcium silicate slabs and blocks contained 8-30% amosite while Caposite sections contained ~85% amosite. Blankets, felts, papers, tapes and ropes were usually 100% chrysotile. The ease of fibre release often depends on the type of lagging used and the surface treatment. Often will be encapsulated with calico and painted (e.g. PVA, EVA, Latex, bitumen or propriety polymer emulsions or PVC, Neoprene solutions), e.g. Decadex finish is a propriety polymer emulsion. A harder chemical-/weather-resistant finish is known as Bulldog. Asbestos boards Millboard Millboard was used for general heat insulation and fire protection. Also used for insulation of electrical equipment and plant. Crocidolite was used in some millboard manufacture between 1896 and 1965; usually chrysotile. Millboards may contain 37-97% asbestos, with a matrix of clay and starch. Asbestos Millboard has a high asbestos content and low density so is quite easy to break the surface is subject to abrasion and wear. Millboard Asbestos boards Insulating board Used for fire protection, thermal and acoustic insulation, resistance to moisture movement and general building board. Found in service ducts, firebreaks, infill panels, partitions and ceilings (including ceiling tiles), roof underlay, wall linings, external canopies and porch linings. Crocidolite used for some boards up to 1965, amosite up to 1980, when manufacture ceased. Usually 15-25% amosite or a mixture of amosite and chrysotile in calcium silicate. Older boards and some marine boards contain up to 40% asbestos. AIB can be readily broken, giving significant fibre release. Also significant surface release is possible by abrasion, but surface is usually painted or plastered. Sawing and drilling will also give significant releases. Asbestolux, Turnasbestos,, LDR, asbestos wallboard, insulation board. Marine boards known as Marinite or Shipboard.
3 Asbestos boards Insulating board in cores and linings of composite products Found in fire doors, cladding infill panels, domestic boiler castings, partition and ceiling panels, oven linings and suspended floor systems. Used as thermal insulation and sometimes as acoustic attenuators. Crocidolite used for some boards up to 1965, amosite up to 1980, when manufacture ceased % amosite or a mixture of amosite and chrysotile. Can be broken by impact; significant surface release possible by abrasion, but usually painted or plastered. Sawing and drilling will also give significant releases. Asbestolux Paper, felt and cardboard Used for electrical/heat insulation of electrical equipment, wiring and plant. Also used in some air conditioning systems as insulation and acoustic lining. Asbestos paper has also been used to reinforce bitumen and other products, combustible boards, flame-resistant laminate. Corrugated cardboard has been used for duct and pipe insulation. Asbestos paper can contain ~100% chrysotile asbestos but may be incorporated as a lining, facing or reinforcement for other products, e.g. roofing felt and damp-proof courses, steel composite wall cladding and roofing (see asbestos bitumen products below), vinyl flooring. Asbestos paper is also sometimes found under MMMF insulation on steam pipes. Paper materials, if not encapsulated or combined within vinyl, bitumen, or bonded in some way, can easily be damaged and release fibres when subject to abrasion or wear (e.g. worn flooring surface with paper backing). Asbestos paper, paper felt, Novilon flooring, Durasteel laminates, vinyl asbestos tile, roofing felt and damp-proof course etc. Pax felt. Viceroy (foil coated paper). Serval.
4 Ropes and yarns Used as lagging on pipes (see above), jointing and packing materials and as heat-/fire-resistant boiler, oven and flue sealing. Caulking in brickwork. Plaited asbestos tubing in electric cable. Crocidolite and chrysotile were widely used due to length and flexibility of fibres. Other types of asbestos have occasionally been used in the past. Chrysotile alone since at least Asbestos content approaching 100% unless combined with other fibres Weaving reduces fibre release from products, but abrading or cutting the materials will release fibres, likely to degrade if exposed, becoming more friable with age. If used with caulking, fibres will be encapsulated and less likely to be released. Cloth Thermal insulation and lagging (see above), including fire-resisting blankets, mattresses, and protective curtains, gloves, aprons, overalls etc. Curtains, gloves, etc were sometimes aluminised to reflect heat. All types of asbestos have been used in the past. Since the mid-1960s the vast majority has been chrysotile. Asbestos content approaching 100%. Fibres may be released if material is abraded. Gaskets and washers Used in domestic hot water boilers to industrial power and chemical plant. Variable but usually around 90% asbestos, crocidolite used for acid resistance and chrysotile for chlor-alkali. Some gasket materials will continue to be used after asbestos prohibition takes effect. May be dry and damage easily when removed. Mainly a problem for maintenance workers. Klingerit, Lion jointing, Permanite, CAF - compressed asbestos fibre or It in German gaskets. Strings Used for sealing hot water radiators Strings have asbestos contents approaching 100%
5 Friction products Resin-based material Transport, machinery and lifts, used for brakes and clutch plates % chrysotile asbestos bound in phenolic resins. Used up to November Low friability, dust may build up with friction debris. Friction products Drive & conveyor belts Engines, conveyors. Chrysotile textiles encapsulated in rubber. Low friability, except when worn to expose textile. Profiled sheets Roofing, wall cladding. Permanent shuttering, cooling tower elements % asbestos (some flexible sheets contain a proportion of cellulose). Crocidolite ( ) and amosite ( ) have been used in the manufacture of asbestos cement, although chrysotile (used until November 1999) is by far the most common type found. Likely to release increasing levels of fibres if abraded, hand sawn or worked on with power tools. Exposed surfaces and acid conditions will remove cement matrix and concentrate unbound fibres on surface and sheet laps. Cleaning asbestos-containing roofs may also release fibres. Asbestos cement, Trafford tile, Bigsix, Doublesix, Supersix, Twin twelve, Semi-compressed flat sheet and partition board Partitioning in farm buildings and infill panels for housing, shuttering in industrial buildings, decorative panels for facings, bath panels, soffits, linings to walls and ceilings, portable buildings, propagation beds in horticulture, domestic structural used, fire surrounds, composite panels for fire protection, weather boarding. As for profiled sheets. Also 10-25% chrysotile and some amosite for asbestos wood used for fire doors etc. Composite panels contained ~4% chrysotile or crocidolite. Release as for profiled sheets. Flat building sheets, partition board, Poilite.
6 Fully compressed flat sheet used for tiles, slates, board As above but where stronger materials are required and as cladding, decking and roof slates (e.g. roller-skating rinks, laboratory worktops). As for profiled sheets. Release as for profiled sheets. Asbestos-containing roofing slate (e.g. Eternit, Turners, Speakers, Everite, Turnall, Diamond AC, JM slate, Glasal AC, Emalie, Eflex, Colourglaze, Thrutone, Weatherall. Pre-formed moulded products and extruded products Cable troughs and conduits. Cisterns and tanks. Drains and sewer pressure pipes. Fencing. Flue pipes. Rainwater goods. Roofing components (fascias, soffits, etc). Ventilators and ducts. Weather boarding. Windowsills and boxes, bath panels, draining boards, extraction hoods, copings, promenade tiles etc. As for profiled sheets. Release as for profiled sheets. Everite, Turnall, Promenade tiles. Textured coatings Decorative/flexible coatings on walls and ceilings 3-5% chrysotile asbestos. Chrysotile added up to 1984 but nonasbestos versions were available from the mid-1970s. Generally fibres are well contained in the matrix but may be released when old coating is sanded down or scraped off. Artex, Wondertex, Suretex, Newtex, Pebblecoat, Marblecoat.
7 Bitumen products Roofing felts and singles, semi-rigid asbestos bitumen roofing. Gutter linings and flashings Bitumen damp-proof courses (dpc). Asbestos/bitumen coatings on metals. (Car body underseals). Chrysotile fibre or asbestos paper (approximately 100% asbestos) in bitumen matrix, usually 8% chrysotile. Used up to Fibre release unlikely during normal use Roofing felts, dpc and bitumen-based sealants must not be burnt after removal. See felts and papers. Flooring Thermoplastic floor tiles. PVC vinyl floor tiles and unbacked PVC flooring. Asbestos paper-backed PVC floors. Magnesium oxychloride flooring used in WCs, staircases and industrial flooring. Up to 25% asbestos. Normally 7% chrysotile. Paper backing approximately 100% chrysotile asbestos. Used up to About 2% asbestos Fibre release is unlikely to be a hazard under normal service conditions. Fibre may be released when material is cut, and there may be substantial release where flooring residue, particularly paper backing, is power-sanded. Novilon>, Serval asbestos. Very hard, fibre release unlikely. Reinforced PVC Panels and cladding. 1-10% chrysotile asbestos. Fibre release is unlikely. Reinforced plastic and resin composites. Used for toilet cisterns, seats, banisters, window seals, lab bench tops. Brakes and clutches in machines Plastics usually contain 1-10% chrysotile asbestos. Some amphiboles were used to give imposed acid resistance, e.g. car batteries. Resins were reinforced with woven chrysotile cloth; usually contain 20-50% asbestos. Fibres unlikely to be released, limited emissions during cutting. Sindanyo, Siluminite, Feroasbestos. Minor emissions when braking, most asbestos degrades with frictional heat.
