Fibro and Asbestos - First Steps Checklist
Does your fibro contain asbestos?
The most accurate way to find out if your fibro contains asbestos is to call us to have it test for you.
Only fibro products made before 1987 contain asbestos. In NSW, for example, the use of asbestos was discontinued in fibro sheets by 1982, in corrugated sheets by 1984 and in all other products by 1986. The manufacture and use of asbestos product was banned nationally from 31 December 2003.
* What else is made of asbestos cement?
Products made from asbestos cement not only include fibro sheeting (flat and corrugated), but items such as water, drainage and flue pipes, roofing shingles and guttering.
* What are the risks?
Breathing in asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. This does not automatically mean that your health is at risk if you find that your home or workplace is made from fibro products. Studies have shown that these products, if in sound condition and left undisturbed, are not a significant health risk. If the asbestos fibres remain firmly bound in a solid cement sheet or structure, generally you do not need to remove the fibro or even coat it.
Health problems usually occur when people are unaware of the hazards of working with fibro.
* Do not use power tools.
* Do not waterblast or scrub.
* It is illegal to waterblast asbestos-cement sheets. If the material has been accidentally waterblasted or has suddenly deteriorated in some way, you should call a us.
* Avoid drilling and cutting into asbestos products. Do not drill holes through eaves, flues or vents, as these may also be asbestos products. * Never cut into a fibro sheet.
* Don't drop fibro sheets.
* Do not put asbestos waste in domestic garbage bins or compactors because it is illegal to do so. (See Help and advice section below).
* Fire damaged property containing asbestos product could result in loose asbestos fibres due to intense heat. A licensed ASA asbestos contractor must be used for cleaning up.
What about insulation?
* Insulation materials in house roof spaces are usually fibreglass, rockwool, paper or foam. Very few houses in NSW have loose asbestos insulation in the roof space.
Coating is not considered necessary on health grounds. Surface coatings, however, can extend the life of asbestos products and may improve their appearance.
