Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Its fibers are powerful, flexible and will not burn. Asbestos also insulates very well and won't break down easily. Asbestos has been used in older plastics, paper products and floor tiles.

Countless industrial products are composed of ACM, for instance sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
