For years, asbestos was used in a wide range of building materials for its insulating qualities, its resistance to heat and chemicals and the strength it added to end products. Over time, however, asbestos has also been found to be a dangerous carcinogen that can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis and other serious respiratory conditions. It is found in:

  • Adhesives

  • Insulation

  • Tiles, Wallboard, Siding and Roofing

  • Asbestos-Cement Pipe and Sheet Material

  • Fireproofing/Acoustical Texture Products

  • Spackling, Patching and Taping Compounds

  • Vermiculite

  • Linoleum and Sheet Flooring

For much of the 20th century, builders used vermiculite insulation, especially in attics and walls. Seventy percent of all vermiculite sold in the U.S. between 1919 and 1990 came from a mine close to Libby, Montana. The majority of vermiculite insulation, which was often marketed as Zonolite, was made from vermiculite sourced from this site. It has since been discovered that there was a deposit of asbestos in this mine as well, so vermiculite insulation is assumed to be contaminated with asbestos.

Not only can ScanPro Services help you determine if you have vermiculite insulation, we have experience with the Zonolite Attic Insulation Trust – a reimbursement program for insulation removal and re-insulation – and can help you through the process.
