Asbestos duct insulation

Duct insulation needed to be cut through so the workers could get access to the duct system and in the process they were subjected to asbestos exposure through the dust resulted in the process. Another potential danger came from asbestos in friable state.

The common insulation products used for heating ducts contained up to 5% asbestos fibers up until the 1980s. The layer of asbestos was usually covering up a fiberglass scrim.

In the case of duct insulation, the asbestos exposure would have taken place when it started to break down. Due to the constant activity happening inside these ducts, the loose fibers of asbestos would have been released into the air. Trying to remove the contaminated wrapping was another way to have been unknowingly exposed to this carcinogenic mineral. 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
