What is asbestos?
Asbestos was a common building material used for a variety of applications from the 1920s to the 1970s. The material offered significant advantages to many construction projects including its resistance to heat and flame. The substance also prevented corrosion and did not conduct electricity, making it the perfect material for many commercial and industrial applications. Due to its versatility, the material was incorporated into thousands of products such as pipes, brake linings, textile materials, furnaces and many building materials. The material was also used widely in naval vessels until the 1970s.
