NOTES
Synthetic vitreous fibers, are a group of fibrous, inorganic materials that contain aluminum or calcium silicates, and are made from rock, clay, slag, or glass. These fibers differ from natural mineral fibers such as asbestos because they do not have a molecular structure that is crystalline. There are three categories of synthetic vitreous fibers: (1) glass fibers, including glass wool (See ICSC 0157) and continuous filament (textile) glass; (2) mineral wool, which contains stone wool (See ICSC 0194) and slag wool (See ICSC 0195); and (3) refractory ceramic fibers (See ICSC 0123).
