This has a density of approximately 1500kg/cu.m and contains about 10-15% asbestos. Crocidolite and Amosite have been used in AC products but Chrysotile is the most common type. AC is very common and has a wide variety of uses such as roofing, wall cladding, partitioning, decorative panels, bath panels, soffits, portable buildings, fire surrounds, cisterns, ventilators and ducts. It is a very hard substance but may release fibres if drilled, abrazed, sawn or if it has deteriorated or decomposed.
