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 its properties 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 Category: Silicate minerals. 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.

Erionite is its properties naturally occurring fibrous mineral that belongs to a group of minerals called usually is found in volcanic ash that has been altered by weathering and ground te forms brittle, wool-like fibrous masses in the hollows of rock formations and has an internal molecular structure similar to properties of erionite are similar to the properties of.

Asbestos is a term applied to several mineral species occurrences & uses book they occur in a fibrous form (asbestiform). When the mineral species are asbestiform, they have the physical characteristics associated with asbestos, such as large aspect ratio of fibers, flexibility, separability and weavability of fibers, and chemical and physical durability.

However, in addition to those common properties, each. Asbestos is the name for a group of natural occurring mineral fibres which are strong and its properties heat and chemically resistant. 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.
