13 Properties and Use of Asbestos Electrical-resistance resistance Cable wrap Transite- asbestos-cement material Panels Conduit Box- breaker, fuse, switch-gear
14 Properties and Use of Asbestos High Tensile Strength- helps products be more durable Vinyl Asbestos Tile (VAT), concrete, roofing, etc.
15 Properties and Use of Asbestos Decoration Textured paint- stucco, stucco, popcorn
16 History And Use It has been used since ancient times Wicks in lanterns (Greeks and Romans) Cremation clothes (Egyptians and Romans) Tablecloths (French Emperor- Charlemagne) Clay Potts (Finland) Insulation in suits of Armor (Middle Ages)
17 History And Use Industrial Revolution (late 1800 s- early 1900 s) Late 1800 s Commercial mining in Canada, South Africa, Russia, China, Italy, and U.S. Insulation on high temperature equipment (steam engine, boilers) Non-flammable fabrics Packing materials Cement products
18 History And Use World War II/Post-War Building Boom The production of asbestos products becomes extensive Used heavily in ships and shipyards Used in many different building materials during post-war construction boom (>3000 products)
19 History And Use Regulations are promulgated in the early 1970 s s by OSHA & EPA The use of asbestos declines in the U.S.
20 History And Use EPA- Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule The EPA Ban and Phase-Out Rule are promulgated. Its purpose was to prohibit, at staged intervals, the future manufacture, importation, processing, and distribution in commerce of asbestos in almost all products Most of the ban was repealed, leaving only a few categories still banned
21 History and Use EPA- Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule Product categories no longer banned- vinyl asbestos floor tile, pipeline wrap, roofing felt, roof coatings, non-roofing coatings, automatic transmission components, clutch facings, friction materials, disc brake pads, drum brake linings, brake blocks, gaskets, millboard, asbestos clothing, and asbestos-cement: pipe, shingle, flat sheet, corrugated sheet. Next: Important Definitions
22 Important Definitions Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM): Are materials that contain more than 1% asbestos by conducting Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) analysis. Three Categories of ACM: Surfacing Materials (SM) Thermal System Insulation (TSI) Miscellaneous Materials (Misc)
23 Important Definitions Thermal System Insulation (TSI) Insulation used to prevent heat loss or gain, or condensation. Examples: pipe insulation, boiler insulation, boiler breeching, HVAC insulation, duct insulation, furnace insulation, tank insulation
24 Important Definitions Surfacing Material (SM) ACM that is sprayed-on or troweled on to surfaces for fireproofing, acoustical, or other purposes. Examples: fireproofing on structural components, ceiling or wall plaster, textured paint
25 Important Definitions Miscellaneous Materials (Misc.) Any ACM that is not TSI or SM. Examples: ceiling tile, floor tile, mastic, roofing, gaskets, caulking, cove-base, transite, siding, shingles
26 Important Definitions Friable: : materials that can be crumbled, pulverized, or crushed to powder with hand pressure when dry (EPA Definition) NYC regulation adds the phrase or with any mechanical means Examples of friable Materials: fireproofing, pipe insulation, ceiling tiles, plaster, boiler insulation
27 Important Definitions Non-friable materials Examples: floor tile (VAT), mastic, roofing, gaskets, caulking, cove-base, transite, shingles, siding and roofing
28 Important Definitions Asbestos Fiber: a particulate form of asbestos, 5 micrometers or longer, with a length-to to-diameter ratio of at least 3 to 1 1 (OSHA) Next: Regulatory Overview
