Asbestos Plastic

Since 1907, when plastic as we know it today was invented, asbestos has been a quite common ingredient in the product, as the fibers would enhance the strength and durability of the material. Unfortunately, you may find asbestos fibers in plastic even nowadays, although this occurs sparingly.

Throughout the better part of the last century, asbestos was present in colossal amounts in industrial settings, so it should not come as a surprise that plastic is no exception. Finely ground asbestos fibers would be added to plastic in order to obtain a stronger, more resistant final product.

As is the case of all products which were manufactured with asbestos, people who partook in the making of plastic before 1980 and even today are at high risk of developing awful diseases such as lung cancer. Following the inhalation or ingestion of asbestos fibers, a malignant tumor may form. People who are at highest risk of exposure when it comes to asbestos plastic are:

  • people who work in plastic manufacturing facilities
  • people who clean up plastic manufacturing facilities
