Loose-fill asbestos was sold as ceiling insulation In the 1960s and 1970s by a company trading as Mr Fluffy.
While most properties impacted were located in the ACT, some properties in NSW were identified as containing this type of insulation.
In December 2014, the NSW Government offered a package for affected home-owners in response to the issue of loose-fill asbestos insulation in NSW homes.
