In the construction industry, asbestos is found in installed products such as sprayed-on fireproofing, pipe insulation, floor tiles, cement pipe and sheet, roofing felts and shingles, ceiling tiles, fire-resistant drywall, drywall joint compounds, and acoustical products. Exposure to asbestos can cause disabling or fatal diseases, whose symptoms generally do not appear for 20 or more years after initial exposure.
