Asbestos is naturally formed over millions of years. It is produced as fibres, with various mechanical properties. The main strength of asbestos is that it is very heat resistant and that it does not conduct electricity. Asbestos has been used for thousands of years, its usefulness being initially discovered by the Romans. In modern times it has been used in many situations, from World War 2 in defence material, to common day products like toasters and hair dryers. In fact virtually any product that is used involving heat or electricity, to some degree, uses asbestos. Not just being used in small or large appliances, it is also cultivated for use in residential and industrial properties. The use of asbestos has in fact declined dramatically since the mid 1970s when the potential dangers of this versatile substance became public knowledge, the use of blue (Crocidolite), brown (Amosite) and white (Chrysotile) are now all banned in this country.

I was very impressed at the speed with which Alliance responded to my enquiry and removed an asbestos tank from my property. They were slightly higher in cost than others but were well worth it as they went over and above by also removing wood shavings and plasterboard that had been used to insulate the tank. I have more asbestos in my home and won't hesitate to use them again.
