People commonly equate asbestos with building materials such as ceiling tiles or plumbing wraps. Certainly, building materials play a large part throughout the history of asbestos. However, historically, asbestos fibers have been used in a great deal of products. There are several different types of common products that use asbestos, including:
- Common household products: Asbestos is known for being heat and fire resistant, so it has been used in the manufacture of most common household products that conduct heat such as coffee pots, toasters, irons and hair dryers.
- Common household materials: The heat resistant materials in oven gloves, ironing board covers and heated blankets contain asbestos.
- Vermiculite garden products: The ore vermiculite is used in garden products because of the properties of aeration and drainage. Unfortunately, this ore might contain elements of asbestos. Common products that use vermiculite are fertilizer, composts, potting soil and pesticide.
