There are two basic classifications of asbestos that determine handling requirements: non-friable and friable.
Non-friable asbestos-containing material
- This material can NOT be crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to a powder by hand pressure or in the course of demolition, renovation, transportation, or disposal.
- Examples of non-friable asbestos: Floor backing, gaskets, resilient floor tile, asphalt roofing, and exterior siding.
Friable asbestos-containing material
- This material CAN be crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder by hand pressure, which could release breathable fibers into the atmosphere.
- Examples of friable asbestos: Pipe insulation, ceiling and wall insulation, and thermal pipe insulation.
