Identify Asbestos

Friable Asbestos Materials

Friable asbestos materials are easy to break or crumble by hand. Examples include old asbestos pipe insulation and talcum powder contaminated with asbestos. These materials are dangerous because they can easily release toxic dust into the air.

Nonfriable Asbestos Materials

Nonfriable asbestos materials, such as asbestos cement slabs and vinyl asbestos tiles, are durable. These products keep asbestos fibers safely trapped as long as the products are undisturbed. Sawing, scraping or smashing the product may release fibers.

KEY FACTS ON ASBESTOS

^

IN MANY HOMES

Exposure to asbestos happens in occupational settings and in homes throughout the U.S

CAUSES CANCER

Other types of cancer caused by asbestos include lung, ovarian and laryngeal cancer. Exposure may cause scarring of the lungs, or asbestosis.

HARD TO DETECT

Microscopic asbestos fibers cannot be seen, smelled or tasted. Unless it is clearly marked as asbestos, the only way to detect asbestos in an unmarked material is to send a sample to a lab for testing or hire an accredited asbestos inspector.

^

DANGEROUS

Asbestos exposure is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs or abdomen.

^

WIDELY USED

Thousands of products containing asbestos were used in the U.S. until the 1980s.
