In addition, the developers of Celotex's no-sag ceiling panels chose a mineral fiber composition for flamespread, acoustical, light reflectance, and aesthetic reasons.
Organizations such as the Department of Health and Human Services, the United States Department of Labor, the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, Cornell University and various European governmental agencies have labeled man-made mineral fibers as "hazardous to health".
Chances are it's a mineral fiber acoustical ceiling panel suspended in a metal grid.

KEYWORDS: asbestos, knowledge gaps, mineral fibers, mode of action, research needs.
Because these ceilings can stand up to tough outdoor and indoor environments, and frequent cleaning/handling, the resulting service life is impressive: Traditional mineral fiber panels have, on average, a 7-to 10-year lifespan, and minimally perforated metal can last as long as 40 years.
Erionite, a naturally occurring mineral fiber similar to asbestos, is found in rock formations and volcanic ash.
In a typical sand casting line, a stencil made of mineral fiber with a clay and latex binder is fastened to the sand after it has been sprayed with hot-melt glue.
Further epidemiologic studies with thorough sampling of environmental sources such as water supply, soil, house paint, and street dust could help to clarify the morbidity and mortality in the population due to mineral fiber inhalation.
Like alchemists of medieval times, these researchers had turned asbestos, a mineral fiber that can prove hazardous if inhaled or ingested, into safe, smooth glass.
