By the 1980s, these products were no longer being used, because of the confirmed link between asbestos and several dangerous diseases including mesothelioma.

Exposure to Asbestos & Aircrafts
Several aircraft components contained asbestos prior to the 1980s, including:
- Engine insulation
- Brake pads
- Electrical insulation
- Glues containing asbestos to adhere parts on planes
Paints and insulation that contained asbestos were also used. For these reasons, aircraft mechanics were often exposed to the harmful substance, which is the only known cause for the dangerous and potentially fatal form of cancer known as mesothelioma.
