Asbestos’ History

Many buildings contain asbestos, which was used in spray-applied flame retardant, thermal system insulation, and in a variety of other materials. Asbestos was sometimes “flocked” above false ceilings, inside technical ducts, and in many other small spaces where firefighters would have difficulty gaining access. Structural components like asbestos panels were also used. In residences, asbestos was often a component of a type of flocked acoustic ceiling called popcorn ceiling or “cottage cheese ceiling,” until its production was banned in the US in 1978. However, the ban allowed installers to use up remaining stocks.

Mastic products containing asbestos is still being produced and installed in current construction. In fact, asbestos containing building materials can be found at your local home improvement stores. Below is a list (not a comprehensive list) of products containing asbestos:
