Asbestos wiring insulation

Damaged wiring makes the asbestos become friable. The workers needed to get in direct contact with these asbestos wrapped wires and when the workers touched them the fried asbestos fibers were released in their proximity.

For wiring insulation a variety of materials were used mostly rubber and ceramic. As rubber expenses increased, asbestos was seen as a welcomed solution. Crocidolite or “blue asbestos” was the type preferred in electrical applications.

In time, the wiring would get worn and damaged and due to the constant electrical charge the asbestos insulation could have easily become friable, making the material extremely delicate to touch. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old buildings
  • You worked directly with asbestos insulated wiring
  • You worked as an electrician
