Asbestos gypsum

Asbestos was added into gypsum products for its fire resistant properties. Fibers of asbestos were released into the air when gypsum was mixed with this mineral or when products containing this mixture needed to be removed.

It is safe to assume that most gypsum boards used during the 20th century contained asbestos fibers, especially if they were marketed as being fire resistant.

Like most products that contained asbestos fibers, if they were left in an intact form the risk of asbestos exposure was relatively low. Unfortunately, the passing of time would make the material brittle, breaking down easily when the worker would interact with it. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old structures
  • You performed demolition work
  • You did remodeling work in old buildings
  • You entered in contact with the clothes or the gear covered in asbestos dust
