Because of the extreme heat involved in melting down these substances, some welding tools contain asbestos. Unfortunately, asbestos fibers are extremely dangerous and often lead to the development of cancers such as mesothelioma.

Some of the tools most likely to pose a risk for welders include:

  • Welding rods- Millions were produced and sold before regulations began to limit the amount of asbestos that can be used, so there are many products still on shelves that contain asbestos.
  • Welding blankets- Contained asbestos because of this fiber’s ability to remain fire resistant when exposed to high heats.
