The private sector, to this date, is still exempt from manufacturing of asbestos products.The generic word is asbestos for the six minerals which are Chrysotile, Crocidolite, Tremolite, Anctinolite, Amosite, Anthophyllite (all are a class a non carcinogen).The most common mineral used in the USA is Chrysotile and Vermiculite (contaminated with Tremolite).
