What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that takes the form of hollow, microscopic fibers, which are nearly indestructible. It can be densely
packed into a tough, flexible and very useful material, which has been used for hundreds of years as an insulation, fireproofing and building

There are three major types of asbestos used in building and industry:

Chrysotile, or white asbestos – used as insulation, fireproofing and soundproofing.
Amosite, or brown asbestos – used in high friction applications like brake shoes and clutches.
Crocidolite, or blue asbestos – not as common as the other two, but the most toxic form.
About 95% of all asbestos used in the U.S. has been chrysotile, the least toxic form of asbestos.
