Chrysotile (White Asbestos) is classed as a sheet silicate and is a member of the serpentine group. The other five types of asbestos are classed as chain silicates and form part of the amphibole group. The amphibole fibres appear as straight needle-like fibres, whereas the serpentine fibres are wavy in morphology. This difference does not matter in terms of the health effects related to inhalation of asbestos fibres. The main health effects include asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. Breathing in asbestos fibres is dangerous to your health. These diseases can take up to 50 years to develop. There may be some treatments for asbestos related diseases, but there are currently no known cures. Asbestos is not dangerous as long as it is kept in good condition (undamaged and undisturbed). Work on ACM's should only be carried out by experienced and highly trained professionals.
Asbestos is the term used to describe the fibrous forms of naturally occurring minerals mined from the Earth. Asbestos has been exploited for its useful properties of:

  • Flexibility
  • High tensile strength
  • Fire Resistance
  • Excellent durability
  • Resistance to chemical attack
  • Insulating properties
Asbestos was used in many materials in Australia between the 1940's and late 1980's. The use of all forms of asbestos has been banned in Australia since December 2003. 

Asbestos containing material (ACM) is the term used to describe a material which contains any of the regulated fibrous minerals. These include:
