Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s).
Asbestos is a mineral that was frequently used as a building material in the UK between 1940 and 1999. Although it was the most common in materials made around the 60s, 70s, and 80s. For this reason, any structure or product manufactured before the year 1999 (when the material was banned in the UK) has the potential to contain asbestos.
