Where is Asbestos found?

ACM’s are split into two types, bonded (tightly bound) and friable (loosely bound). Bonded ACM’s are common in the domestic home. Bonded materials usually contain up to 15 – 20% asbestos, they are generally quite solid and the asbestos fibres are tightly bound in the material. Bad removal practices involving bonded materials can result in bonded materials becoming friable. Other environmental factors can also contribute to the deterioration of bonded asbestos materials, including weathering. 

In Queensland bonded asbestos can be removed by experienced individuals who posses a ‘B’ Class Certificate for Asbestos Removal. Friable asbestos was more commonly used in commercial and industrial settings. They can be as much as 100% asbestos and can be pulverised by hand pressure. Friable asbestos is very dangerous as the asbestos fibres are more easily airborne. Friable ACM’s must only be handled and removed by an asbestos removalist with an ‘A’ Class Certificate. Asbestos Solutions Australia holds current ‘A’ and ‘B’ Class Certificates. All of the team at Asbestos Solutions Australia carry out removal works in a safe and professional manner.
