This product was a composite of cement that had the ability to be cast into different shapes. Its main purpose was insulation. Asbestos fibers were added into the castable’s formula in order to increase its durability and ability to resist flames.

The people that were subjected to the highest level of asbestos exposure from contaminated castables were the ones helping in the product’s manufacturing, as asbestos fibers were constantly infesting the environment. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself on construction sites where asbestos castables were used
  • You worked directly with asbestos castables
  • You helped in manufacturing asbestos castables
  • You performed demolition work
  • You entered in contact with the clothes or the gear covered in asbestos dust
