Asbestos pipe insulation

Large quantities of dust were created when the workers had to cut the pipes that were insulated with asbestos-containing materials. This would cause the asbestos fibers to become airborne and pose a threat to the workers’ health.

Due to the environment where pipes were installed, insulation was required in order to prevent the pipes from deteriorating. Asbestos was used for most of the 20th century in manufacturing insulation products designed to wrap and protect piping systems found in unfavorable conditions.

The asbestos insulation started to deteriorate with the passing of time, leaving the asbestos fibers in a friable state due to the alternating temperature, from hot to cold. When the workers would interact with the pipes, asbestos particles would spread into the atmosphere, exposing them to the toxicity of asbestos. You could have been exposed if:

  • You worked with asbestos contaminated pipe insulation
  • You performed plumbing or duct work
  • You found yourself on a constant basis around boilers
  • You found yourself working on old factory machinery and piping systems
