Information on Asbestos and Asbestos
The term "asbestos" describes six naturally
occurring fibrous minerals, namely chrysotile, amosite,
crocidolite, tremolite, anthophylitte and actinolite. When mined
and processed, asbestos is typically separated into very thin
bundles of fibers and then commonly mixed with a binder during
Asbestos has been known to man for centuries
and has been used in literally hundreds of products. Asbestos
was used because it is strong, insulates well, and resists fire
and corrosion. Common modern uses are as thermal pipe and boiler
insulation, spray-applied fire proofing and sound proofing,
floor coverings, ceiling tiles, roofing materials and "transite"
pipe and sheeting.
In the United States, asbestos became widely used in the early
1900s and its use peaked during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
Despite wide spread use of asbestos many asbestos manufacturers
and industry insiders became aware of the serious health issues
surrounding asbestos in the 1930s and 1940s, but kept the
information secret from workers and from the public. In the
1970s the Federal government stepped in and regulated the use of
asbestos products. It is also now commonly agreed that exposure
to asbestos can cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other
Today despite being better regulated an estimated 1.3 million
employees in construction and general industry face significant
asbestos exposure on the job. Heaviest exposures occur in the
construction industry, particularly during the removal of
asbestos during renovation or demolition. Employees are also
likely to be exposed during the manufacture of asbestos products
(such as textiles, friction products, insulation, and other
building materials) and during automotive brake and clutch
Asbestos Product Dumping
In addition to domestic exposure, some
companies have taken asbestos products that cannot be sold in
the United States and have sold the product in other countries.
This product dumping of dangerous asbestos insulation, asbestos
block, and other asbestos products can cause serious problems
including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other health problems.
Texas companies that dump dangerous products in other countries
and cause significant harm can sometimes be brought into the
Texas courts to answer for their wrongful dumping and be made to
pay money compensation for their wrongful acts.

include silica, chemical pollutants, lead, radon, EMFs,
toxic mold infestations
and other environmental toxins have caused death and serious harm to
