Owing to the shortage of Asbestos Fibre, and in order to maintain the fullest supplies of ' Fibrolite, it-has been found necessary to vary the components of "Fibrolite" Asbestos-Cement Fluì Sheets and Moulded Accessories by reducing the quantity of Asbestos Fibre and substituting mineral fibre. The new product has been tested in our laboratory and, in our opinion, will give satisfactory results.
