Asbestos Removal

What is Asbestos and Asbestos removal? 

Definition of Asbestos:

‘Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material the name covers any of six incombustible, chemical-resistant, fibrous minerals of impure magnesium silicate, occurring in either serpentine or amphibole form, and used historically in many products, including fire proofing, electrical insulation, building materials, brake linings and chemical filters. Owing to health hazards, notably lung damage from asbestos inhalation, use of asbestos has been restricted and its removal has been mandated in many instances’.

Where is Asbestos used?

Asbestos was widely used as an insulation and fire proofing solution. In particular, it found its way into products like ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, boilers, sprayed coatings and garage roof tiles in buildings such as houses, factories, offices, schools and hospitals. It was even used in clothing, a handkerchief in the 18th Century, and Charlemagne the Roman Emperor was said to have a tablecloth made entirely from ‘Salamander Hair/Wool’ – the Roman name for asbestos.

Why should we remove asbestos?

It has now been proven that the fibres from asbestos can cause serious harm to people’s health. Asbestos inhalation can lead to breathing problems, lung cancer and mesothelioma, causing around 5000 deaths every year, with around 500 new cases coming to light yearly.

As this has become an important issue, the need to remove asbestos has increased over the years.

How can we help you remove asbestos?

Time to gain an hour!!!

clocks_990a

Clocks go back Sunday 29th October

What is the one thing people want more of?????

Well if it is Time that you are wanting then you are in luck!, as we will all be gaining an extra hour on Sunday. Yip Pee!!!!

The clocks should be put back 60 minutes at 1am on Sunday October 29. When the clocks go back, the UK will be back onto Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Mobile phones and other devices connected to the Internet should change automatically. Other devices, like cookers and ovens will need to be changed manually.

Clocks then move forward again on March.  The reason for changing the clocks twice a year is known as Daylight Saving Time and was brought in from 1907 to get people out of bed earlier during summer when it gets light from 4 to 5am even when the clocks have gone back. But there have been calls to scrap it entirely because of the adverse impact of nights drawing in earlier during winter.

So don’t forget Sunday 29th Oct to turn your clocks back 1 hour!

It’s back to work for everyone at Masterflex (hopefully everyone will turn in on time) manufacturing hoses and ducting to suit your individual requirements

Give the office a call to get a quote, sample or to make a purchase.

What is the definition of Pharmaceutical?

The definition of pharmaceutical is something related to prescription drugs or pharmacies.

What are pharmaceutical drugs used for?

A pharmaceutical drug is a drug used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent disease. Drugs are classified in various ways. One of the key divisions is by level of control, which distinguishes prescription drugs from over-the-counter drugs. Another key distinction is between traditional small molecule drugs, usually derived from chemical synthesis, and bio pharmaceuticals, which include recombinant proteins, vaccines, blood products used therapeutically, gene therapy, and cell therapy. Other ways to classify medicines are by mode of action, route of administration, biological system affected, or therapeutic effects. An elaborate and widely used classification system is the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System.
