Asbestos is a mineral fiber that occurs in rock and soil. Because of its fiber strength and heat resistance asbestos has been used in wide variety of products and materials including building and construction materials such as insulation, fire retardant, shingles, tiles, drywall, plaster, popcorn ceilings, and cement products. Other products and materials include automobile parts (clutch, brake, and transmission parts), heat-resistant fabrics, packaging products, gaskets, drilling fluids and coatings.
Asbestos fibers can be released into the air during product use, demolition work, home renovations, repair, and remodeling. Generally, exposure occurs when the asbestos-containing material is disturbed or damaged in some way, allowing the release of asbestos particles and fibers into the air. When inhaled, these particles remain in the lungs and increase your risk of adverse health effects and disease. The most common diseases associated with exposure to asbestos include asbestosis, pleural effusion, mesothelioma and lung cancer.
