Asbestos in sound deadening material 1930’s cars?


Recommended Posts

You can soak the pieces down with a water mister bottle before disturbing it while wearing a proper approved mask and paper suit. Very slowly pull the pieces and bag them. Dispose it as asbestos material. The danger to asbestos is the fryable dust that is released as you disturb it not the big chunks. That can get into your lungs as they look like little fish hooks. Your body then encapsulates these fibers to protect your lungs and you loose lung capacity. And yes as a dumb kid at a car dealership I blew the brake dust off myself too. Did not understand dangers back then but wiser now after courses on asbestos abatement training.  Want to live long enough to become a problem to society!! Hope this helps.
