Asbestos is best known for its use as insulation and as a building material found in many older properties across the country. Asbestos is classed as a hazardous material and can only be disposed of at certain locations in Australia.
In the past, asbestos was used in around 3,000 products manufactured worldwide, most commonly in the construction, car manufacturing and textile industries.
From the 1940s until the late 1980s, fibro was one of the most commonly used building products. This is a bonded product containing around 15% asbestos.
Fibro was widely used as wall and ceiling sheeting in houses, workplaces and government buildings because of its strength and resistance to chemicals and heat. Since 31 December 2003, asbestos and all products containing asbestos have been banned throughout Australia.
