Asbestos is a dangerous substance that was used in the construction and renovation of many buildings between 1940s and 1970's. Asbestos contains harmful contaminants that can damage the lungs and create long term health hazards, including certain cancers. It is believed that even low levels of exposure can be extremely harmful over time. The following are examples of some building materials that may contain asbestos:
- Sprayed coatings and laggings - e.g. insulation of pipe work.
- Sprayed fire retardant containing asbestos and cement mixture - fire protection.
- Sprayed/loose packed asbestos - e.g. as fire breaks in ceiling voids.
- Insulating boards - used for fire protection, thermal insulation.
- Asbestos cement products - roofing and wall cladding, transite siding.
- Certain textured coatings - ceiling & wall texture, acoustical support.
- Asbestos board/paper products in electrical equipment.
- Flooring - e.g. floor tile and mastic, sheet linoleum, leveling compounds
- Thermal System Insulation (TSI) - e.g. pipe and boiler insulation
- Ceiling tiles
