• fibrous
  • Mine workers at the Balangero mine had first discovered it and named it, based on its overall color and fibrous nature of other minerals present in the mine, xylotile or metaxite. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fiber cement thicknesses vary between 4.5-18mm and also vary in density - the lower density resulting in a fibrous rough edge when cut and the higher density having a cleaner smoother edge when cut. (wikipedia.org)
  • Resistance
  • Thermal resistance and sound transmission can vary greatly between fiber cement products. (wikipedia.org)
  • The thicker/denser fiber cement products have excellent impact resistance but the thinner less dense products need to be protected from impact. (wikipedia.org)
  • Though not immune to the effects of a sufficiently hot fire, the fire resistance of fiberglass, stone wool, and ceramic fibers makes them common building materials when passive fire protection is required, being used as spray fireproofing, in stud cavities in drywall assemblies and as packing materials in firestops. (wikipedia.org)
  • nutrients
  • Four minerals: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, are essential for life but are so ubiquitous in food and drink that these are not considered nutrients and there are no recommended intakes for these as minerals. (wikipedia.org)
  • Proteins
  • The macronutrients (excluding fiber and water) provide structural material (amino acids from which proteins are built, and lipids from which cell membranes and some signaling molecules are built) and energy. (wikipedia.org)
  • facings
  • Furthermore, very few other facings are suitable for bonding to lightweight glass fiber boards due to surface irregularities. (google.com)
  • lung
  • A study of the mineral dust content of the lungs of persons who lived in an urban environment was conducted using tissue taken at autopsy from the right upper lung lobe of 60 persons who had lived in Rome, Italy. (cdc.gov)
  • About 20% of the inhaled fibers are transported by cytoskeletal components of the alveolar epithelium to the interstitial compartment of the lung where they interact with macrophages and mesenchymal cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fireproof
  • Fiber cement siding has several benefits since it is resistant to termites, does not rot, is impact resistant, and has fireproof properties. (wikipedia.org)
  • specification
  • Fiber cement siding using baseboard materials that have been classified, by accredited laboratories, as Category A according to BS EN 12467: 2004 Fiber-cement flat sheets - Product specification and test methods are sidings which are intended for applications where they may be subject to heat, high moisture and severe frost. (wikipedia.org)
  • board
  • Fiber cement board may come pre-painted or pre-stained or can be done so after its installation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Grain
  • Mylonite is a fine-grained, compact metamorphic rock produced by dynamic recrystallization of the constituent minerals resulting in a reduction of the grain size of the rock. (wikipedia.org)
  • This effect is compensated through grain-boundary-migration recrystallization which reduces the internal energy by increasing the grain boundary area and reducing the grain volume, storing energy at the mineral grain surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • material
  • Fiber cement is a composite material made of sand, cement and cellulose fibers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fiber cement cladding is a non-combustible material which is widely used in high bushfire prone areas throughout Australia. (wikipedia.org)
  • The fiber as such is used as a raw material for its reinforcing purposes in various applications, such as friction materials, gaskets, plastics, and coatings. (wikipedia.org)
  • exposure
  • Crushing the ball released more than 200 fibers/ml of air, when the accepted limits for occupational exposure are lower that one fiber/ml. (wikipedia.org)
  • made
  • Europe also includes glass wool which, together with ceramic fiber, are completely man-made fibers. (wikipedia.org)
  • The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has reviewed the carcinogenicity of man-made mineral fibres in October 2002. (wikipedia.org)
  • aluminum
  • Binding in Paper-Like Composites Based on Mineral Fibers Dubovyi, V. 2005-12-14 00:00:00 The structural and physical parameters of paper-like composites based on mineral fibers with aluminum polyhydroxo complexes as binders were determined and analyzed. (deepdyve.com)
  • calcium
  • Small amounts of talc (14807966), rutile (13463677), and calcium-sulfate (7778189) fibers were also noted. (cdc.gov)
  • large
  • As soluble fiber reaches the large intestine, the prebiotic fibers begin to ferment and yield short chain fatty acids, which affect the function of many regulatory systems in the body. (totaldiscountvitamins.com)
  • Balangeroite can develop as loose fibers or compact when in large volumes which can be prismatic. (wikipedia.org)
  • types
  • DBB still contains 13 grams of fiber per serving and still contains all of the original types of fiber. (lifeplusvitamins.com)
  • Mining in Iran is underdeveloped, yet the country is one of the most important mineral producers in the world, ranked among 15 major mineral-rich countries, holding some 68 types of minerals, 37 billion tonnes of proven reserves and more than 57 billion tonnes of potential reserves worth $770 billion in 2014. (wikipedia.org)
  • boards
  • In appearance fiber cement siding most often consists of overlapping horizontal boards, imitating wooden siding, clapboard and imitation shingles. (wikipedia.org)
  • While the best possible reaction to Fire Classifications are A1 (construction applications) and A1Fl (flooring applications) respectively, both of which mean "non-combustible" according to European standard EN 13501-1: 2007, as classified by a notified laboratory in Europe, some fiber cement boards only come with Fire Classification of A2 (limited combustibility) or even lower classifications, if they are tested at all. (wikipedia.org)
  • natural
  • Although the petroleum industry provides the majority of economic revenues, about 75 percent of all mining sector employees work in mines producing minerals other than oil and natural gas. (wikipedia.org)
  • products
  • In the first quarter of 2009-2010, Iran exported close to 5.6 million tons of mineral products worth over $1.2 billion. (wikipedia.org)
  • heat
  • Though the individual fibers conduct heat very well, when pressed into rolls and sheets, their ability to partition air makes them excellent insulators and sound absorbers. (wikipedia.org)
  • completely
  • This new mineral, balangeroite, was tested and found to be completely different from xylotile and metaxite in composition as well as optical properties. (wikipedia.org)
