      Known hazards. Both amphibole and serpentine types of mineral are dangerous to humans. Despite its benefits as a fire retardant, asbestos causes respiratory disorders, including lung cancer. The mineral was mined from the earth in tonnes and used widely in building applications from the s until the s. Asbestos is a generic name given to six fibrous minerals that have been used in commercial products. The six types of asbestos are chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite asbestos, tremolite asbestos, and actinolite asbestos. Several properties that make asbestos so versatile and cost effective are high tensile strength, chemical and thermal stability, high.

Asbestos characteristics or properties: this article describes the physical properties of asbestos including its mechanical, chemical, electrical and related properties both in pure asbestos form and when asbestos is mixed with other materials like cement or rubber.

As the author points out, while this is a lenghty article, there is far more detailed information about asbestos properties. After description of the structures of asbestos minerals, their formation and occurrence in the lithosphere is outlined and their physical and chemical properties are listed.

Asbestos (pronounced: / æ s ˈ b ɛ s t ə s / or / æ s ˈ b ɛ s t ɒ s /) is a term used to refer to six naturally occurring silicate are composed of long and thin fibrous crystals, each fiber being composed of many microscopic 'fibrils' that can be released into the atmosphere by abrasion and other processes.

Asbestos is an excellent electrical insulator and is highly heat. Many studies have shown that the combination of smoking and asbestos exposure is particularly hazardous.

Smokers who are also exposed to asbestos have a risk of developing lung cancer that is greater than the individual risks from asbestos and smoking added together (3, 6).There is evidence that quitting smoking will reduce the risk of lung cancer among asbestos-exposed.

Asbestos whiskers and fibers were traditionally used for thermal insulation in buildings as well as for heat shield applications. The discovery of the health hazards of asbestos, however, has led to a severe limitation and regulation of asbestos use in the construction industry.

Due to these properties, asbestos was commonly used in the past as insulation and fire proofing. It was also used as a component in other building materials.
