Products with Asbestos New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia
Asbestos was widely used in manufacturing and the construction trades due to its durability and resistance to heat, electricity, and chemical damage. Though its use is limited in the United States today, some asbestos-containing products manufactured prior to the 1980s are still in use today. When inhaled, microscopic asbestos fibers can travel deep into the lungs, where they accumulate and irritate the lung tissue. The result is often the development of asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma and asbestosis. Due to the long latency period of these illnesses, symptoms may take 20 to 50 years to appear.
