Fine, silky, flexible white Chrysotile fibers (also known as “white asbestos”) make up 80% to 90% of all asbestos contained in buildings in the United States.
AMOSITE (AMPHIBOLE ASBESTOS)
Straight, brittle Amosite fibers, light gray to pale brown (also known as “brown asbestos”) are most commonly used in thermal system insulation and the second most prevalent type of asbestos found in building materials. The Amosite family consists of 5 asbestos types: Crocidolite, Tremolite, Anthophyllite, and Actinolite.
CONVERTED NON-ASBESTOS MATERIAL
The ABCOV® Method destroys asbestos minerals by attacking the crystalline structure, and, therefore, the asbestos itself.
