Asbestos-containing materials, including caulk, were commonly used in construction until the late 20th century. The type of asbestos used in window caulk can vary, but chrysotile asbestos, also known as white asbestos, was a common choice. Chrysotile was widely used for its flexibility, heat resistance, and durability, making it suitable for various construction applications, including caulking.
Asbestos-Containing window caulking
If you suspect that window caulking in an older building may contain asbestos, it is essential to exercise caution. Asbestos exposure can pose serious health risks, especially when materials containing asbestos become damaged or disturbed, releasing asbestos fibers into the air.
Handling or disturbing asbestos-containing materials without proper precautions can lead to the release of airborne fibers, posing health risks. Always follow safety guidelines and local regulations when dealing with potential asbestos-containing materials.
