Modern Use of Asbestos

While many people erroneously believe that asbestos use has been curtailed since the 1970s, this is not entirely the case. Since mesothelioma lawsuits and class action suits first became commonplace in the late 1970s, asbestos use went into a decline. This is not to say, though, that it is no longer used. Asbestos is still used in several different industries, and can still potentially pose a risk to your health.

Banning Asbestos?

Although the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule in 1989, it was soon overturned in the court case Corrosion Proof Fitting v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As a result, asbestos can legally be used in many products, including:

  • Asbestos-cement corrugated sheet
  • Asbestos clothing
  • Pipeline wrap
  • Roofing felt
  • Vinyl-asbestos floor tile
  • Disc brake pads

Legislation is being considered that would ban asbestos use in almost all products. However, until that legislation passes, asbestos remains legal for many products.
