Asbestos was a very commonly used construction material. It was used for fireproofing, insulation, enhancing material strength, sound proofing and adding a decorative component in commercial and residential buildings.
As a fireproofing material: It was sprayed on steel beams, columns, and decking that was used in multi-storied buildings. This application prevented these structural members from warping or collapsing in the event of fire.
As an insulator: It was used for thermal insulation and condensation control. It was sprayed on, or trowel applied, factory installed on or within equipment. Pipes, boilers, ducts, and other components of hot and cold-water systems and HVAC systems.
To enhance material strength: Used for components exposed to the outdoor elements for longevity and strength. These products include exterior siding on houses, roofing shingles, roofing felts, floor/ceiling tile, joint compound, and adhesives.
Used as sound proofing or decorative effect: Used for acoustical control and decorative component. Asbestos was added to product to create a softer texture appearance in homes and commercial buildings. Product was applied by trowel or by spraying on ceilings and walls.
