Evaluation of asbestos-containing products and released fibers in home appliances

This study is about asbestos-containing products and released asbestos fibers from home appliances. The authors investigated a total of 414 appliances manufactured between 1986 and 2007. Appliances were divided into three categories: large- and small-sized electric appliances, and household items.
