Standardization News, American Society for Testing and Materials, 32(4):26-29, April


Asbestos is a generic term used to describe a series of naturally occurring silicate mineral fibers. The most common of these fibers are chrysotile (a serpentine mineral), and five amphibole minerals – amosite, crocidolite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite. These fibers have been widely incorporated into fireproofing, friction products, soundproofing, insulation, concrete reinforcement, and a variety of other uses.
