Were you exposed to asbestos during World War II? Automotive, Construction and Maritime Industries Relied on Asbestos

Asbestos continued to be used during and after World War II, which saw the heavy use of asbestos in many different industries, including automotive.

During WWII, asbestos was incorporated in ships to insulate many components that were subjected to high tempertures.

Asbestos was also being used in the automotive industries. Many automobiles still contain asbestos in clutch and brake linings.

In the construction industries, materials containing asbestos included insulation products, floor and ceiling tiles, siding, and cement pipes. Most homes and buildings constructed during this time contain asbestos.

It is estimated that more than 30 million tons of asbestos have been used over the last century in the United States alone. Approximately 3,000 products have been produced that use asbestos in them.

In addition to industrial, maritime, construction, and automotive products, asbestos has been utilized in items such as household appliances and handheld hair dryers, ironing boards, and textiles.

Many people have come forward to say their work environment during World War II led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
