Amosite Asbestos

American Cancer Society showed that exposure to amosite asbestos and increase the risk of causing cancer in comparison with other types of asbestos. According to many studies of exposure to amosite asbestos can cause lung cancer and mesothelioma and lung fibrosis.A study conducted on more than 800 former workers who were exposed to amosite asbestos factory in Paterson, New Jersey that nearly 19% of them have died of lung cancer 17 mesothelioma cases occurred. After closing in 1954, move the factory to the Tyler, Texas, until closing permanently in 1972. Among former workers at Tyler 1130, 16% of them died of lung cancer. It is believed many of these cases that have been caused by exposure to amosite.
In its natural state and is known as amosite mineral grunerite commercially referred to as grunerite asbestos amosite, or brown. Was extracted from approximately 80,000 tons of amosite in the province of Transvaal in South Africa by the year 1970.Uses of amositeAmosite is only useful when used as asbestos because the fibers offer good tensile strength and resistance to heat. Commercial products that were manufactured with amosite the following:Electrical insulationThermal insulationPlumbing insulationInsulation panelsCement and paperChemical isolationRoofing productsFire protectionTiles, including those of the bishopFloorsAmosite asbestos is also known as brown asbestos, because of the color gray to brown, or Grunerite. Amosite and is characterized by brittle fibers, respectively, and used for the cement sheeting and insulation of pipes. At the height of the recognition of asbestos, "and was really amosite form the second most commonly used is generally of metal. Mined in South Africa, and dropped many of the miners of poor amosite because this is the second most dangerous form of asbestos.Using a wide range of amosite asbestos mainly of fire retardant in thermal insulation products such as ceiling tiles. Brown asbestos is now banned in most countries and was for several years. Possible, but can still be found in the oldest products and structures, and therefore continues to cause significant risks, particularly because this form of asbestos is very fragmented. Which indicates that simply breaks down when damaged, and therefore the release of airborne fibers which can then be inhaled by workers in the field of materials.Amosite asbestos is a form of asbestos-recognized cause of mesotheliomaThe amphibole. Crystals vary and can be found such as leaflets flat, crisp cereal, or a long thin fibers. Fiber is often found naturally in the packages. Threading a long thin flexible amosite somewhat, and bend to put the brackets and wide. These brackets long threads of amosite break into small groups to make a sharp needlelike fibers.The latter parts of the fibers are flat, not frayed or have a history of division, a feature that helps distinguish amosite than chrysotile. Broken packages also are often found and tails look like a broom in appearance. Can identify the parts of the crystal fiber in a number of construction materials that were manufactured with amosite.Amosite caused many cases of cancer, including mesothelioma in a lot of people from different countries, in particular near the amosite mines in South Africa, and the source of the world's major business of amosite. Workers who mined and processed amosite have cancer rates much worse than those of the population is extensive.Any asbestos mineral amosite workers in the United States is the most likely of amosite mines in the Transvaal, South Africa. Amosite asbestos has been used commonly in thermal insulation products and building products such as ceiling tiles, ceiling, floor tiles, insulation, plumbing, and the isolation of chemicals, mattresses, backward and paper, cement, electricity and telecommunications insulation.Seen as the second most dangerous type of asbestos, amosite, or brown asbestos was mined primarily in South Africa, despite the cessation of commercial production of this type of asbestos in the past 15 years, and it is no longer mined mineral. A member of the amphibole types of asbestos, and is characterized by amosite fibers, which are long thin pieces are fragile and easily, leading to easily inhaled.For a long time of the twentieth century was amosite second most common type and use of asbestos in building materials, although it ranked far behind the chrysotile asbestos for such uses. Records show that nearly 5 percent of all asbestos used in commercial buildings, factories, and was, at one time, a variety of amosite.Amosite asbestos has been used mostly in the manufacture of thermal insulation, and was also used in audio production, anti-condensation. However, the use of this break up very easily broken down and is now banned form of asbestos in most countries due to the high level of toxicity.Brown asbestos cancer risk has become very clear in the studies, which included miners who were working with amosite in South Africa. Has developed a large proportion of these individuals severe pulmonary problems, including benign and malignant diseases of the pleura (lining of the lungs). Moreover, Americans who work with asbestos amosite in factories that use this form of the metals in the manufacturing process and also showed high rates of deaths from asbestos-related diseases including cancer, mesothelioma.
