Asbestos Calcium Silicate

This type of pipe lagging contained asbestos fibers for added durability and flame resistance. By cutting the pipes with this type of covering, you were exposed to dangerous amounts of asbestos dust spreading life-threatening microscopic particles around you.

This compound is a mix between calcium and silicon. Even though it is nowadays used as an alternative to asbestos fireproof insulation, for a stint of several decades, the product contained asbestos fibers. This was done in order to make it more durable and more resistant to extreme heat.

It is very likely for old buildings to contain this type of material, mostly surrounding pipes but also found in sheets placed in walls. Despite the claims of their prolonged durability, these asbestos-containing products would break down over time and expose the workers that would have made direct contact with them. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old buildings
  • You worked directly with asbestos calcium silicate
  • You did remodeling work in old structures
  • You entered in contact with the clothes or the gear covered in the asbestos dust
