Made up of oxygen, hydrogen, silicon, and assorted metals, asbestos is classified as a mineral. Its fibers are strong, flexible and will not burn. Asbestos also insulates very well and does not break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Usually, asbestos fibers are mixed with a substance that holds them together, producing asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. An assortment of industrial products are comprised of ACM, including sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
