- Haveg 41 and Haveg 60 pipe and fittings are described as containing asbestos.
It says, "Haveg 41 is the standard and most widely used grade. It is composed of a phenol-formaldehyde resin and an acid-digested asbestos fiber..."
And, "Haveg 60 is composed of the same acid-digested asbestos as employed in Haveg 41 but differs in that the resin used is furfuryl alcohol."
- The section on Pyrex piping suggests several different kinds of gaskets. One type of gasket mentioned is long fiber blue asbestos.
- The use of an asbestos insert is pictured on a figure entitled "Flanged pipe and split flanges (Pyrex)" and the figure is attributed to Corning Glass Works.
- Chapter on Insulation:
Asbestos-sponge felted insulation may be used for temperatures up to 700F
"For temperatures up to 900F a bonded combination of diatomaceous silica and asbestos fiber is used. This is known under various trade names as 'Superex', 'Hy-Temp', etc"
Corrugated and plain asbestos felts for temperatures up to 300F
