Give Crown Asbestos Removal a call
Holding an A-class licence enables Crown Asbestos Removal to work on all types of Asbestos products. Asbestos products were manufactured in two forms - friable asbestos and non-friable asbestos.
Friable Asbestos The hazardous friable asbestos is material which can be crumbled, pulverised, or reduced to powder by hand pressure. This may also include previously non-friable material which becomes broken or damaged by mechanical force.
As a general rule - If the Asbestos containing material can be easily disturbed and become air borne - by the effect of a breeze or simply creating a breeze by walking past it - it is in a friable state.
Common materials/usages include - pipe lagging,
Non-Friable Asbestos Over 97% of the products in Australia were non-friable material in which the Asbestos fibres were bonded by cement, vinyl, resin or other similar material.
If accidentally damaged or broken, these asbestos products may release a few fibres initially but will not continue to do so.
Common materials/usages include - cement sheeting used in bathrooms, under eves
