Common Sources of Asbestos Exposure

Wallace & Graham, P.A. is skilled at tracking down “the where and the how” of mesothelioma causation. We represent victims of mesothelioma, asbestosis and asbestos-related lung cancer throughout the United States.

Our attorneys have obtained millions of dollars in damages in product liability litigation against manufacturers and employers for knowingly or negligently exposing our clients to asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).* This requires knowledge of the wide range of workplace equipment, construction materials and consumer goods known to have contained friable asbestos before those products were banned.

Asbestos-Containing Products

From the early 20th century and well into the 1980s, asbestos was widely used in thousands of machines and products for its fire-retardant and insulating properties. The asbestos products below (by no means a comprehensive list) once contained sufficient amounts of the toxic mineral to trigger mesothelioma and other disease:

  • Turbine blankets
  • Pump packing
  • Boiler lagging
  • Pipe insulation
  • Valve casings
  • Gaskets
  • Furnace linings
  • Spray-on fireproofing
  • Welders’ gloves and smocks
  • Fire-resistant clothing
  • Oven mitts
  • Aerosol flocking (fake snow)
  • Millboard (book bindings)
  • Asbestos wall insulation
  • Roof shingles
  • Electrical wire
  • Wallboard (Drywall)
  • Acoustic ceiling tiles
  • Floor coverings
  • Sandpaper
  • Cement and brick mortar
  • Joint compounds
  • House paint

Paper manufacturing felts
Brake pads and clutches
Cranes and heavy equipment

People who worked with asbestos products day in and day out are naturally at greater risk for mesothelioma or asbestosis. However, mesothelioma is not a dose-specific disease. A one-time exposure could result in tumors 30 years later.

If you have symptoms of mesothelioma and have had contact in the past with these materials (even 40 or 50 years ago), we can explain what to do in a free consultation.
