What are the different types of asbestos?
CHRYSOTILE – White Asbestos
Chrysotile is one of the most common forms of asbestos. It’s made of curly fibres, is highly flexible as well as heat resistant.
It’s commonly found in walls, roofs, and boiler seals.
Actinolite is commonly dark in colour but can be green, white or grey. It’s one of the rarest forms of asbestos and is formed of dense, brittle fibres.
It’s commonly found in drywall, paints, and cement.
This asbestos is extremely dangerous and can still be found in the UK. Anthophyllite fibres form long, needle-like clusters that puncture tissue and stick to the lungs.
It’s commonly found in composite flooring, cement, and insulation.
– Blue asbestos
Crocidolite fibres are short, sharp, brittle and thin, making them easy to break and therefore the risk of exposure is higher.
It’s commonly found in pipe insulation, and cement wallboards.
Amosite is a strong, highly heat resistant type of asbestos, with coarse and strong fibres. It’s known for being one of the most dangerous types of asbestos.
It’s commonly found in insulation boards, ceiling tiles, and thermal insulation materials.
Tremolite is a contaminant that is commonly found in chrysotile asbestos and is made from long, sharp fibres. It can also be woven into cloth.
It’s commonly found in paints, ceiling tiles, and insulation.
