|Asbestos is the name of a group of naturally occurring mineral fibers. Asbestos has many positive characteristics which have been proven useful for centuries. Asbestos fiber does not deteriorate under normal usage, does not conduct electricity, and is very resistant to fire, heat and corrosion.
Asbestos has been used in paper products, paints, adhesives, insulations, cements, automotive parts, protective clothing, roofing materials, toasters, popcorn poppers, slow cookers and in many other products.
Unfortunately, this “super” material also contains a very dangerous quality. When handled, asbestos separates into microscopic-sized particles which remain in the air and can easily be inhaled. When inhaled, asbestos can develop into many types of life-threatening diseases. As the hazards of asbestos became more known, bans and regulations were passed to limit its use.
While the use of asbestos and asbestos products has decreased significantly in recent years, it can still be found in many residential and commercial settings and continues to pose a health risk to workers and others.
