Asbestos, a dangerous lesson from the past

Hailed once as a breakthrough in building technology, the use of asbestos took the construction industry by storm in the 1930s. Its unique fibrous properties made building materials stronger without the addition of much weight, as well as increased their insulation quality and fire resistance. It is no wonder that it was quickly adopted as the new gold standard.

Asbestos is a term used for six naturally occuring silicates. These silicates are all composed of thin crystals and each fibre is made out of microscopic fibers. These can be released into the atmosphere due to abrasion and other processes. These particles are undetectable by the
human eye, and when inhaled can cause an irreversible, severe lung condition known as asbestosis and cancer.

The use of asbestos was only outlawed in the late 1980s, creating a huge window for its use across New Zealand.
