Common products that may contain asbestos

As you might know, asbestos is a dangerous substance that can cause serious health problems for those who are exposed to it. Even though this is the case, there are some products still in use that contain this harmful material.

One of the best ways to protect yourself from potential exposure is to know the most common products that contain asbestos. Keep reading to find out what these are.

Building materials

In the past, the cement that contained asbestos was used because of the strength of the fibers. It was also fire-resistant and had insulating benefits, which made it seem like the “ideal” building material. This type of cement was heavily used in the construction industry from the 1900s until the early 1970s, which means if you are working on older homes or buildings, there is a risk of asbestos exposure during demolition.

Along with cement used for building, many roofing and ceiling tiles contained asbestos, too. Even some adhesives used for flooring tiles were made using this dangerous substance.

Textiles

Some people don’t realize that asbestos was also used for producing garments and clothes. Again, the product was appealing because it was resistant to corrosive elements and heat. Some of the most common textiles that asbestos was used in included rope, blankets, and firefighter suits.

Protecting your health and your rights

If you have been in a situation where you were exposed to asbestos, you have legal rights. If the exposure led to health complications, it might be possible to file a lawsuit. Because of the complexity of these cases, it’s smart to work with a legal professional who can investigate the situation and help you determine the liable party in your case and situation.
