Asbestos Products

Asbestos was widely used in the United States prior to the 1970s, but especially after the turn of the century and during the war years. Because the product was strong, durable, inexpensive and easily purchased, it was included in countless applications, from shipbuilding and factories to the construction of federal and office buildings and homes. It was included in both consumer products and commercial products, and this means that countless people were exposed, many of them without any knowledge of the risk that they faced.
