Fiber or fibre (from Latin: fibra) is a natural or man-made substance that is significantly longer than it is wide. Fibers are often used in the manufacture of other materials. The strongest engineering materials often incorporate fibers, for example carbon fiber and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene.. Synthetic fibers can often be produced very cheaply and in large amounts compared to.

Mineral wool is also known as mineral fiber, mineral cotton, mineral fibre, man-made mineral fibre (MMMF), and man-made vitreous fiber (MMVF).. Specific mineral wool products are stone wool and slag also includes glass wool which, together with ceramic fiber, are completely man-made fibers.. History. Slag wool was first made in in Wales by Edward Parry, "but no effort. IEH report on Natural and man-made mineral fibres: UK research priorities - Report R3 from Medical Research Council - Institute for Environment and Health (). CSTEE/97/2 - Add. Asbestos and other natural mineral fibres () and 77 Man-made mineral fibres (). The document aims at providing basic information to all concerned when implementing safety in the use of mineral and synthetic fibres other than asbestos. It covers a wide range of materials: (i) man-made mineral fibres - insulation wools (rockwool.
- Key points - Introduction - What are asbestos and man-made mineral fibres? - Where are these materials used? - What are the risks to health? - How to identify and assess materials containing mineral fibres - How to manage fibrous materials in buildings - Advice on problems involving asbestos - Disposal of asbestos waste - Common questions and answers. Some fibres are fine enough to be breathed in but few will reach deep into the lung and those that do will not persist as they are generally much more soluble than asbestos. There is some evidence of increased lung cancer risk in workers producing mineral wool insulation in the early days of the industry. Man-made Mineral Fibres and Radon. IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, No. IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risk to Humans. Synthetic mineral fibres (SMF) is a generic term used to collectively describe a number of amorphous (non-crystalline) fibrous materials including glassfibre, mineral wool and ceramic fibre. Much of the international literature refers to SMF as 'Man Made Mineral Fibres' (MMMF). Glassfibre and mineral wool have been used for many Size: KB.
