Products with Asbestos

Asbestos was used in a wide array of products from the 19th century through the 1980s, when measures were taken to reduce exposure, including the introduction of standards and laws that banned the use of asbestos in a variety products such as construction materials. However, some manufacturers continued to manufacture asbestos-containing products into the early 2000’s. Lawsuits against companies producing and installing asbestos began after doctors and researchers began noting severe lung problems among workers who handled asbestos.
