What is asbestos
Asbestos is known to be a hidden killer because you can't see it and because it usually doesn't cause symptoms for years after exposure. Asbestos almost always causes death.
Asbestos is the term for various natural minerals which crystallize to form long, thin fibre bundles. Asbestos fibres have high tensile strength, chemical, electrical and heat resistance. It is for this reason that asbestos has been used in almost all buildings in the UK built before 2000 and has been and is used in many other countries around the world.
Asbestos is a hazardous material and can pose a serious health risk if the fibres are broken, released into the air, and inhaled.
