What Makes Asbestos Dangerous?
During the second half of the last century, asbestos was widely regarded as a miracle material, thanks to the fact that it’s exceptionally light, fire and chemical resistant, and has both sound and temperature-insulating properties. It’s fibers are virtually indestructable, and they can be blended with paints, composites, metals, and other fabricated products.
Asbestos was mined throughout North America, and it was used in a wide variety of building materials such as:
- Insulation, including HVAC duct insulation, sprayed insulation, and electrical wire insulation
- Fire curtains
- Furnaces and water heaters
- Cement wall board
- Ceiling tiles
- Roofing materials
- High-temperature gaskets
- Caulking, putties, tapes, and adhesives
While asbestos is relatively safe when it is contained within a compound or material, when that material is disrupted during a renovation or breaks down due to age, the tiny, hair-like asbestos fibers can become airborne – that’s when asbestos becomes dangerous.
Airborne asbestos has been positively linked to a wide range of serious, and even life-threatening health conditions, including a form of lung cancer called mesothelioma, a.k.a. “asbestos cancer”. In the mid-1990’s the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency banned the development of new applications using asbestos, and they severely restricted asbestos in both consumer goods and industrial products.
