Asbestos is usually present to the extent of about 5% in its deposits. To recover 1 ton (t) of asbestos, about 20 t of waste rock must be removed. This is achieved by fracturing the rock in crushers and other impact hammer mills to liberate the fibers. These are then fed to shaking screens equipped with suction hoods. Large fans provide the suction that lifts the fiber from the screen and carries it to collecting cyclones. A plant in Australia is said to be separating asbestos fibers from the rock by wet methods (Stewart 1986).

Alloy 6013 is used for formed parts of secondary structures in place of 2024 due to its superior formability (the fatigue performance is slightly inferior to that of 2024). The 6013 alloy can be formed in the T4 condition and aged to the T6, whereas 2024 must be Aircraft Materials Figure 2 Structural materials usage: fighter aircraft. Figure 3 Aluminum alloy evolution. formed in the ‘‘O’’ condition for optimum formability, then solution treated and aged. The requirement for solution treatment often creates distortion problems with formed parts.
