Insulation containing asbestos was a cheap, durable, and fire-resistant product that was used for decades in homes, commercial buildings, boiler rooms, ships, and other locations. Asbestos has been linked to diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and various types of cancer.
If you handled insulation products containing asbestos as an insulator, shipyard worker, construction worker, pipefitter, or in another capacity, and you have contracted a life-threatening disease, you may be able to obtain compensation. Contact a workplace asbestos exposure lawyer to learn more about your rights to compensation as an insulator.

Insulators and Asbestos Exposure
As an insulator or construction worker, you may have worked with the following materials containing asbestos:
- Thermal pipe and block insulation
- Corrugated air–cell insulation
- HVAC duct insulation in sheet or blanket form
- Blown-in insulation
- Thermal paper products
- Sprayed-on insulation
- Joint and elbow fillers
- Electrical wiring insulation
- Some types of vermiculite insulation used to insulate attics
- Many other asbestos-containing products
The potential for harmful airborne particles of asbestos to be released is significant during installation activities. Once it is in place, these types of insulation may pose less of a hazard. During renovation work, the potential hazard greatly increases. If you contracted an asbestos-related disease due to your exposure as an insulator or construction worker, Brayton Purcell LLP can represent you.
