An investigation of the surface of chrysotile asbestos fibre: M38-8/49E-PDF

"In Canada the only commercial variety of asbestos mined is chrysotile, a hydrated magnesium silicate. Chrysotile is one of Canada's most important industrial minerals and has many end uses, e.g., in asbestos-cement products and as reinforcing agents in resins. The overall desirable properties of chrysotile asbestos have not yet been duplicated by any one single material. The remarkable nature of chrysotile is in large part due to its surface characteristics. Although some knowledge of the surface characteristics exists, much remains to be learned. It is unlikely that chrysotile asbestos can be fully exploited unless detailed studies of such characteristics as surface properties are undertaken. This paper discusses the application of a commercial instrument, the Zeta Meter, for measuring the electrophoretic mobility of selected chrysotile asbestos fibres as well as another relevant fibrous mineral, brucite"--Introd., p. i.
