BIG BAG HOMOLOGATED FOR ASBESTOS
What is asbestos and why it is dangerous?
Asbestos is a natural material with a fibrous structure. Its resistance has made it a perfect additive for cement. Due to this fact, it is quite used by construction industries. Its insulation properties have made it optimal for cover roofs and walls.
We can find asbestos in friable materials. If these materials are damaged or powdered, they become dangerous for humans. In fact, asbestos is made of little fibre, that could be easily inhaled and they could lead to serious illness to our respiratory system.
HOW TO DISPOSE ASBESTOS?

The companies have to:

- prepare and send the documents necessary to obtain the authorizations;
- encapsulate the material and cover it with penetrating products;
- reclaim the surrounding surfaces on which was laying asbestos;
- get rid of the material;

THE ECOLOGICAL FIBER-CEMENT, THE SUBSTITUTE OF ASBESTOS
The ecological fiber-cement is a perfect substitute for asbestos, because it is a resistent material and so it is suitable for the construction industry. The ecological fiber-cement was created in 1994, inmediately after the ban for the production of eternit. The ecological fiber-cement is suitable for multiple uses in the construction sector, for example in building roofings or tanks for water and other liquids. Even if this new maerial isn't long-lasting as much as asbestos, it could resist without problems for at least 10-15 years.
