Abstract:
Since the turn of the century, thin-section asbestos-cement sheet and pipe products have been manufactured. Health and environmental concerns regarding the use of asbestos have led to a worldwide search for alternative fibers. Paper reviews the state of the art in using synthetic fibers to replace asbestos in fiber-cement products.
