Asbestos is the common name for silicate materials that have a fibrous structure. These materials are extremely resistant to acid and fire making them highly attractive for use in manufacturing building materials subject to extreme heat or acidic conditions. Asbestos can be found in various types of fire proofing materials, electrical and thermal insulation and brake linings. Its durability has made it popular in many heavy industrial applications.
Some limited uses for Asbestos were seen in the 1700's, however, it was not until the late 1800’s during the Industrial Revolution, that asbestos come into widespread use. The steam powered factories of the Industrial Age with their many turbines, boilers, kilns, ovens, and other high-temperature equipment used asbestos extensively for insulation and as a fire retardant.
