Asbestos duct adhesive

It was available in spray-on or tape form. As a spray, the material would start to crumble, making it easy for the asbestos particles to spread faster and if it was applied as tape, in time, the material would start to deteriorate, posing a threat for the people nearby.

Until the 1980s, asbestos was included in the manufacturing process of duct adhesives due to its fire-resistant properties. Even though it was also found in spray-on form, the most known duct adhesive was the tape one. This type of adhesive was made with a foil backing and heat-resistant cement or compound containing asbestos fibers.

For the people working with heating ducts, the adhesives used on them posed a high risk of asbestos exposure if they were found in a friable state. This happened due to the passing of time and the constant high temperatures. You could have been exposed if:

  • You worked directly with asbestos-insulated heating ducts
  • You performed maintenance work in factories or plants
  • You worked on ships
  • You performed demolition work
  • You were involved in asbestos abatement projects
