Asbestos analysis


The term asbestos stands for a group of very resistant and non-flammable minerals with a fibrous structure. Until the beginning of the 1990s they were mainly used for thermal insulation or fire protection. Asbestos is found in brake pads and clutches, in electrical appliances, in machines and technical equipment, in heating systems and, above all, as a building material in a great many buildings. Asbestos fibres that enter the lungs can cause asbestosis, hardening and scarring of connective tissue, and cause cancer. In the meantime it has also been proven that asbestos substitutes, such as artificial mineral fibres, KMF, can cause cancer.
