Nice asbestos label pic


Recommended Posts

That was part of the Keasbey & Mattison Company, manufacturer of many asbestos building products. I'm intimately familiar with one of the factory buildings that manufactured that brand, the company founder's mansion and several of the executives' homes.

Coincidentally, I'm in Ambler next Tuesday to inspect a medical office building that used to be a K&M exec's home.

I knew you'd educate me about the company. It's half the reason I posted the picture.

Ambler is full of interesting old houses built for the executives. Up till a couple years ago they had a mountain of asbestos in the town. It was remediated by covering it with dirt and putting a fence around it. Quite a few clients told me that when they were young all the kids used to play on the mountain of asbestos.

Always wondered: is the term "air cell" a brand name or a generic term for the product?

Air-cell must be a generic trade name. I've seen the term on K&M, JM, Ehret and Gast products and many times in old mechanical engineering books describing the product.

I'm relieved to hear it.
