Asbestos/cement pipe corrosion. Part 1, Historical, technological, economic and statistical background / B. Nebesar and G.W. Riley. : M38-13/83-16E-PDF

"A critical evaluation of the causes of asbestos/cement pipe corrosion and possible prevention of release of asbestos fibres was required on the basis of information contained in several published reports on asbestos fibres in drinking water systems. The question, whether asbestos ingested with drinking water is harmful, has not yet been resolved. This report presents background information on the history of asbestos/cement and asbestos/cement pipe; on technology comprising raw materials, the asbestos/cement matrix, manufacturing processes, specifications, properties and uses of asbestos/cement pipe; and on related economic and statistical data. The aim is to help bridge the differences among readers from various fields and provide useful information on which to base decisions. References from North American, European and Australian sources are cited"--Abstract, page i.
