What is Mr Fluffy loose fill asbestos insulation?

Loose fill asbestos insulation is finely crushed asbestos, and up to two million fibres can be found under microscope on the sample size of a 50 cent piece.

It was blown into roof spaces in Canberra homes between 1968 – 1979. Over time this material has subsequently travelled to other areas such as wall-cavities, underfloor spaces, cupboards, heating cooling ducts and vents, living areas and bedrooms.
