Thanks for having me in your Forum. It has been a great help so far researching all kinds of topics.
Now that I’m in the middle of rewiring my Attic (House was build approx. 1968 ) I’ve come across an “Insulation Sandwhich”. Could anyone of you tell me if I have eventually come across ASBESTOS?
- Layer at the bottom: light gray, kindof forms a mat, but chunks can be pulled out very easily (comes apart easier that glass wool). It burns black and leaves marks like paper or wood ashes - Could be cellulite type material
- 2nd layer: looks like camel wool, probably rock wool but not sure
3)Top layer: bright white - probably fiberglass insulation
Was loose asbestos insulation ever used in the US?(http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-01-29/first-asbestos-home-identified-in-nsw-government-testing/6053582) but never heard of anything like that over here.
