Asbestos in Building Materials
Due to its versatility and tensile strength, asbestos was massively used in the past. This material was mostly installed to properties that were built before the mid-1980s. Asbestos products could be found in every part of a house.
There are two types of asbestos materials that were used for building in the construction industry:
- Non-friable or also known as bonded
- Friable or loosely-bound
The non-friable material consists of a small amount of asbestos fixed in a hardened cement matrix. It is the most common material used in residential housing. Famously called ‘fibro’, ‘asbestos cement’ or ‘AC sheeting’, the material is likely to contain 10-15% of asbestos fibres, but occasionally it can reach up to 40%.
The bonded type is less of a risk if treated properly and kept encapsulated, compared to the loosely-bound called "friable".
Another bonded product that is commonly used in commercial, industrial and residential buildings is insulating boards. It is used for fire protection, sound and heat insulation. Asbestos product is also used for:
- Ceiling tiles
- Wall linings
- Electrical panels
- Circuit boards
- Lining under eaves
- Lagging on hot water pipes
- Backing of vinyl floor and tiles
- Garden sheds
- Dog kennels
Is New Building Free from Asbestos Products?
Although according to the general rule that only houses built before 1990 contain asbestos products, based on the news, a new structure is also possible of being installed with products containing dangerous asbestos fibres imported from China. This case occurred in Perth Children’s Hospital where the collapsed ceilings were identified fas being contaminated with asbestos materials.
In fact, asbestos was been fully banned on December 31, 2003. All forms of this material are no longer allowed in Australia, including mining, storing, selling, importing, using, reusing, as well as manufacturing the products.
With the fact that some buildings could possibly be installed with illegal products containing asbestos, demands use of our team for continual testing.

Our Asbestos Removal Processes
Before performing any asbestos removal work, a pre-inspection may be required. In some circumstances, the Asbestos Removal Specialists Darwin Team may need to perform sampling and test the sample via a NATA-certified laboratory.
Once the presence of asbestos is confirmed, the Asbestos Removal Darwin Team will identify and determine the next proper control measure, which is often asbestos removal.
Removal of asbestos
Our team will restrict access to the working area. We remove asbestos using specialised equipment and tools. The material will be placed and sealed in a 200-micron thick plastic. All personal protective equipment (PPE) and disposable equipment that was used during the process, will also be placed in the 200-micron plastic. When required, our team will perform clearance inspections to ensure your property is safe from asbestos hazards.
Disposal of asbestos waste
All PPE, used tools, and asbestos waste will be disposed of properly by our team. We will identify and locate the nearest EPA-accredited facility that can accept asbestos waste. Rest assured the whole disposal process will be performed in accordance with the national and local regulations.
