AEROSPACE COMPONENTS CONTAINING ASBESTOS
Grumman Aerospace—which was purchased by Northrop in 1994 to form Northrop Grumman—was a leader in the manufacturing of military and civilian aircraft during the heyday of asbestos use.
Prior to the 1970s, aircraft construction and maintenance employed a wide variety of asbestos-containing products including:
- HEAT SHIELDS
- ELECTRICAL WIRING SYSTEMS
Products known to contain asbestos were used at a number of Grumman facilities, including:
- GRUMMAN AEROSPACE IN LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK
- GRUMMAN AEROSPACE IN BETHPAGE, NEW YORK
- GRUMMAN AIRCRAFT IN FARMINGDALE, NEW YORK
Due to its long latency period, mesothelioma typically becomes evident decades after the actual contact with asbestos fibers. Many workers who were exposed to asbestos from the 1960s through the 1980s may have only recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer.
