WHAT BUILDING MATERIALS CONTAIN ASBESTOS?

Prior to 1985, building materials and textiles containing asbestos had been widely used for almost a century. Many residential, commercial, and public structures were built using asbestos-containing construction materials, particularly the asbestos plates and tiles produced by the Johns-Manville plant in Nashua, NH prior to its closure. Wastes from the textile industry and the Nashua plant were distributed as free landfill materials, even after their closure. Insulated pipe, tank or duct insulation, fireproofing, drywall, roof and flooring materials can also contain asbestos material.

WHAT IS ASBESTOS?

Asbestos is a hazardous building material that must be maintained and handled properly if damaged or, if for any reason, must be removed. Building materials suspect for asbestos must be tested to determine an asbestos presence. If found, asbestos should only be handled, encapsulated and/or removed by licensed and trained professionals.

 Asbestos is referred to as a group of minerals that look like thin, long separable fibers. These fibrous materials are small but can be seen under a microscope. Asbestos can be found in certain building materials, such as pipe insulation, spray applied fireproofing, sheetrock mud, floor tiles, and the tape around the ductwork. When disturbed, these fibers float and can be easily inhaled into the lungs. Officials have recognized asbestos as being a serious health threat to people and can be cancerous, causing various lung diseases.

WHY WAS ASBESTOS USED?

Asbestos is nonflammable and a poor heat conductor, therefore making it a valuable material in the construction of flame retardant materials used in Industrial Plants such as pipe insulation, and safety clothing for fire fighters. It is also used in many others building products because of it fibrous properties and its longevity as a building material.

ASBESTOS FACTS

Asbestos is nonflammable and a poor heat conductor, therefore making it a valuable material in the construction of flame retardant materials used in Industrial Plants such as pipe insulation, and safety clothing for fire fighters. It is also used in many others building products because of it fibrous properties and its longevity as a building material. 

  • Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral composed of bundles of fibers. It has proven to be very resilient, serving as an excellent insulator that is not affected by heat or chemicals.  It also serves as an ideal noise insulator and it does not conduct electricity.  For these reasons, it has been used in building materials since the late 1800’s and in automotive components as well.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1971 declared asbestos unsafe and a hazardous air pollutant with strict requirements regulating removal and disposal.
  • Asbestos has been determined to cause severe, and even fatal health problems such as Asbestosis (scarring of the lung tissues) and cancers of the lungs, esophagus, colon, pancreas, and stomach. 
  • Health problems resulting from asbestos exposure can take 10 to 40 years after exposure to appear in an individual. 
  • Asbestos must enter the body to cause health problems.  This happens though inhalation or ingestion of asbestos fibers. 
  • Asbestos fibers can become airborne and a possible health hazard when materials containing asbestos are disturbed or improperly removed. 
  • Asbestos fibers are so microscopic that they are often unseen when airborne, thus individuals can be exposed to asbestos without their knowledge. 
  • Once asbestos is released in an area, it can remain in that area for an indefinite amount of time. Disturbed asbestos fibers become airborne and eventually settle down onto objects.  These fibers can become airborne again upon any disturbance or activity in that area. 
  • Asbestos is safe and legal to remain in homes or public buildings as long as the asbestos materials are in good condition and the asbestos cannot be released into the air. 
  • Asbestos was banned in the 1970’s but is still very present in homes and buildings built after that time and is being used today to a limited extent.

    WHAT TO DO IF ASBESTOS IS FOUND

    As stated above, Asbestos should only be handled and/or removed by trained professionals. If the material containing asbestos is in good condition, leave it alone. If unsure whether or not the material contains asbestos, an asbestos certified technician can inspect to sample and test the material for you.

    Before you have your facility or business remodeled, you should find out whether asbestos-containing materials are present. If you find damaged material containing asbestos (i.e., unraveling, frayed, breaking apart) you should leave it alone and immediately contact a licensed abatement professional.
