About Asbestos Africa

Most of us have heard of asbestos and the fact that when exposed to it, it could have devasting health implications, particularly to your lungs if its fibres have been inhaled.

It’s no wonder that there is an immediate type of fear response associated with the word asbestos, but what is asbestos and what can be done if it is discovered in your home or commercial property?

Asbestos Africa has the solution and answers.

What is asbestos?

There are several types of asbestos, however, generally speaking, asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate material.

It has long thin fibrous crystals which on a microscopic level have tiny fibres that are released into the air if the material is disturbed or has started to show wear and tear.

Asbestos Africa has the tools to identify asbestos and the level of risk it presents on its discovery.

Properties of asbestos

The properties of asbestos are generous as a building material, it is a good insulator for electricity, it is resistant to heat, fire, acid, alkalis, and is extremely strong, flexible, and durable. It is also a heat and acoustic insulator.

The properties of asbestos made it a convenient and desirable building material throughout the world before its health hazards were discovered.

If it has so many uses, there must be a way to make it safe.

What is asbestos used for?

Asbestos was used mainly for building materials and for roofing, walls, floors, tiles, and even asbestos cement products, it has even been used in motor vehicle parts.

It’s been used for many years and as a result, millions of homes, factories, and buildings contain it.

Asbestos is generally discovered on roofs. It is particularly challenging and hugely expensive to do asbestos roof repairs, and because of this, asbestos roof repairs were not possible until recently.

Considering that a large majority of buildings have been built or enclosed with using asbestos, it may seem almost impossible to get rid of, but there is now a way to make it safe.
