Asbestos Paper

Used mainly for insulating, the paper needed to be cut for size. By doing this, the worker was exposed to the asbestos fibers released in the process. Used up asbestos paper raised the level of exposure when it was torn down.

PRODUCT USE

80 years
1982

Asbestos paper was mainly used as insulation or as backing for other thermal-resistant products. Up until the 1980’s, this product was preferred mostly for insulating piping or electrical systems.

As it was applied, asbestos paper usually got folded, pulled or ripped, actions that caused the microscopic particles of asbestos to spread into the environment. Another danger regarding asbestos paper was getting friable, a state in which the material would start to crumble at the slightest touch. You could have been exposed if:

  • You handled asbestos paper on a constant basis
  • You performed plumbing or duct work
  • You worked as an electrician
