    It’s funny(not really) to me there are such strict harsh consequences for not handling asbestos correctly, but you can stop by the quick stop and buy a pack of smokes. Just things that make a guy shake his head...

    Asbestos is an amazing insulation. Following the logic of tobacco, why not just put a warning on the package it causes cancer. Insulate at your on risk.

    On the contrary, and you are able to look it up, until the early 70's this pipe was filled with asbestos. If the sections are much heavier than regular b-vent you can be guaranteed it's full of it. The stickers give away the age.

    And buy brake pads chock full of it, too. Some of the highest concentrations of airborne asbestos can be found at intersections.
