Aviation Industry: Asbestos Exposure

Our Attorneys Will Fight for You in Court And at the Negotiating Table

Aircraft mechanics who worked in both the private civilian sector as well as for the United States military may have been exposed to harmful asbestos fibers in the their workplaces. The aviation industry utilized asbestos for its heat resistant and fire retardant properties for many decades.

By the 1980s, these products were no longer being used, because of the confirmed link between asbestos and several dangerous diseases including mesothelioma.

Exposure to Asbestos & Aircrafts

  • Several aircraft components contained asbestos prior to the 1980s, including:
    • Engine insulation
    • Brake pads
    • Adhesives
    • Electrical insulation
    • Glues containing asbestos to adhere parts on planes

Paints and insulation that contained asbestos were also used. For these reasons, aircraft mechanics were often exposed to the harmful substance, which is the only known cause for the dangerous and potentially fatal form of cancer known as mesothelioma.
