Asbestos was widely used as a building material until completely banned in Australia in December 2003. If you are undertaking work on an older home or commercial property it may contain asbestos materials.
Friable (non-bonded) asbestos products contain loosely packed asbestos fibers. These materials are potentially dangerous because asbestos fibers can be easily released into the air. Another reference associated with friable asbestos is explained in a way that asbestos fibers can become airborne when material is crushed from the pressure of a person’s palm.
Only licenced professionals can remove friable asbestos, the most common items where you may require a friable asbestos removalist are items such as asbestos backed sheet vinyl (ABV) flooring, asbestos lagging found around water pipes in wet areas and alike and asbestos containing dust (ACD).
