What is non-friable asbestos?

There are two categories for asbestos  — friable and non friable. Non-friable asbestos is the less dangerous type. This is a bonded type of asbestos or the ones that are incorporated into building materials. When the material is maintained properly, there is a low risk of exposure to asbestos. This will only become dangerous or risky when the material, such as the wall or ceiling, becomes damaged and the inner material is exposed to the air. Once the asbestos fibers become exposed, they can be airborne for hours or even days. That would mean that there’s a huge risk of inhalation of these dangerous materials.
