Pyrolysis of Chrysotile Asbestos Fibre

CIM Bulletin, 1956

IT IS WELL KNOWN that chrysotile asbestos from various occurrences exhibits varied physical properties and certain differences in chemical corn position, both of which conditions may have an important bearing on the industrial utilization of the fibre. The usefulness of a harsh fibre in the manufacture of asbestos cement products and of low-iron fibre for certain electrical uses are examples. It is also .possi.ble to obtain a fibre with a texture too harsh and brittle to be of economic value.
