Veterans who served in the U. S. Air Force are very likely to have been exposed to Asbestos while working in military bases and aircraft during their time of duty. This exposure put them in great danger of later developing Mesothelioma and other diseases caused by Asbestos exposure.
The U. S. Air Force has extensively utilized Asbestos due to its heat resisting properties and affordability, while completely ignoring most or all health risks until the 1970s.
It is highly advisable that all Air Force veterans should be aware of the dangers Asbestos posed to them or their families and seek legal help.
Asbestos materials were used in the building of both aircraft and Air Force bases. As such, several occupations in this sector put service members at risk of Asbestos exposure. This risk also extends to civilian contractors and subcontractors who carried out work at Air Force bases.
Asbestos was extensively used in the building of Air Force facilities, and many of them may still contain Asbestos materials even today. The most prevalent examples of Asbestos materials used in Air Force bases are pipe insulation, ceiling tiles, drywall, Asbestos cement wall insulation, floor tiles, and vinyl flooring.
Asbestos was also used in the construction and maintenance of aircraft. This put Air Force mechanics at an increased risk, as many aircraft parts were built using Asbestos because of its superior heat resisting properties. Asbestos was used in brakes, engine heat shields, gaskets, insulation for electrical wiring, insulation in cargo bays, and torque valves.
