The outstanding physical properties of asbestos mineral fibres make them an excellent material for many technical applications. Despite a ban on the substance in several countries owing to the health hazard it presents, products containing asbestos are still in widespread use. This book serves as a guideline to estimate risks resulting from handling asbestos materials. Potential asbestos substitutes are reviewed too, particularly for housing and water mains construction.
