Processing Asbestos Fibres: Effects Upon Physical Properties

CIM Bulletin, 1950


Asbestos as received by the manufacturer of asbestos products is in the form of either crudes or milled fibres processed to different degrees of texture. Frequently, the manufacturer finds that l:ihe fibres as he buys them are not adaptable to his plant, and, therefore, it is necessary for him either to contact the mine supplying the material and request a specific texture for the fibre or to reprocess the fibre in his own plant.
