Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that has been processed in a significant number of products. There are more than 3,500 different applications known materials where asbestos was processed. Most of these materials are used in the construction, transportation, and industry. But there are also lesser-known forms of asbestos-containing materials which are, to say the least, remarkable and eyebrows will do frown. So it is entirely possible that you encounter asbestos-containing materials during the performance of the favorite sport or hobby.

Written sources have become clear that since then, over the years by different peoples, individuals and companies manufactured a variety of products containing asbestos for various purposes. With the dawn of the industrial revolution began the industrial processing of asbestos-containing materials in an increasing number of goods.

In the twentieth century, asbestos was used on a large scale until the end of the twentieth century in many countries banned the use of asbestos after decades of discussions about the harmfulness of asbestos.
Asbestos has some very favorable properties. Asbestos is resistant to high temperatures, is chemically inert, has excellent insulating properties, has a high tensile strength and is very resistant to wear. The mineral was easy and cheap to extract and adequately stocked. It was also easy to process the metal on an industrial scale in a wide variety of materials and applications. Continue reading
