Asbestos

This page is currently not sponsored. Contact us for sponsorship opportunities.
A fibrous natural form of certain silicate minerals, it has been used historically as a fire retardant and insulant.

However, since the 1980s the use of asbestos around the world has been almost completely phased out except for a few specialist cases primarily in chemical production.
