No, they weren't. Do your research, Truther
now you might say well it was stopped because it says the spraying was stopped...but they did not start spraying both towers at the same time...they
would work their way through the buildings as work progress...so just saying they stopped at approx 30 floor up is a complete faux pas.
Why Was So Much Asbestos Released During 9/11?
The World Trade Center (WTC) North Tower construction was completed in 1970 and the South Tower in 1972. These New York City buildings occupied 16
acres in lower Manhattan. WTC construction began before the worldwide concern about asbestos we have today. The lower floors of the WTC towers
contained high amounts of asbestos insulation. Asbestos use in the Twin Towers was estimated at 100 to 1,000 tons.
The steel beams and columns in the WTC were sprayed with asbestos for insulation and fireproofing. In the middle of the spraying project, the New York
City Council banned the spraying, halting the project. Abatement of some areas occurred, but this was several years after tons of asbestos material
had already been applied
In April 1970, the New York City Department of Air Resources ordered contractors building the World Trade Center to stop the spraying of asbestos
as an insulating material.
so why stop the spraying of asbestos if it wasn't even used.......Silly Falser
Although there was an official record of 400 tonnes of Asbestos used in the construction of just the Twin Towers at the World Trade, there are
suggestions that there was were still 1,000 to 2,000 tonnes of asbestos still remaining within the fireproofing, paneling and insulation in the
construction of the World Trade Centre and the surrounding buildings that collapsed releasing the toxic cocktail of dust.
]do your research silly falser
Why are you so desperate to lie....Is this something you feel a need to do...over and over and over you spread falsehoods...and then call people
the official records show 400tons used...but i guess it makes no difference does it....because even when it gets looked into you seem to have some
derogatory remark about truthers.
Then you put this JOHN guy into a different category...i remember first run in with him ...and he had the audacity to say"Do you know who i
am"...like it makes one bit of difference...I could not care if he was Steven Hawkings himself if his is spewing crud....It's still crud no matter
whose mouth it is coming from.
Soon as one puts their self indulgent Ego ahead of looking into things they no longer are focussed on the issue at hand.
So now...was there ...or was there not Asbestos in the buildings....keeping in mind...that from the 50's through the 60's Asbestos was WIDELY used in
all aspects of the building industry.
Also why would there be a concern for Asbestos regarding the first responders.
but this is not enough for you a presume....so here....
Asbestos, an organically occurring and fibrous mineral, has been used in myriad construction applications, especially fireproofing and insulation
applications. The initial estimates for the construction of the Twin Towers, which were built between 1966-1971, called for 5,000 tons of asbestos to
be used as fireproofing materials. As the hazards and health risks of asbestos began to be understood, however, the builders of the Twin Towers ceased
using asbestos-containing insulation. At that point they had completed 64 stories of the 110-story skyscrapers. Some of the asbestos material was
abated from the site, but at the time of the 9/11 attacks, it is estimated that 2,000 tons of asbestos remained within the buildings
now not one of this is from a silly truther site as you seem to like to use that as a basis for faulty research....(which does not go hand in
hand)....this is from people lookng at the effects of the asbestos on people in and around the area of the towers.
So how about you go do some research...Silly falser.
now time frame...which is interesting.....more lies from the OS about the asbestos.
In 1971 New York City banned the use of asbestos in spray fireproofing. At that time, asbestos insulating material had only been sprayed up to
the 64th floor of the World Trade Centre towers. Other materials were used in place of asbestos but some critics maintained that such materials would
not provide insulation. One such critic was Herbert Levine, who had invented spray fireproofing in the late 1940’s. His combination of asbestos
with mineral wool enabled the construction of large steel framed buildings. Previously such buildings, such as the Empire State Building, had to have
their steel frames insulated with concrete, a much more expensive and difficult process. Levine repeatedly had predicted that "if a fire breaks out
above the 64th floor, that building will fall down."
so this order apparently comes in about april 1970...i believe it was about 1972 when was banned ....now this is strange is it not.....cause were
they spraying the buildings after occupation.
Considering the North tower opened in DEC 1970....and the south tower in Jan 1972.
But i guess that is normal...stop the spraying after the tower already opened...April would have been nearing completion....Silly Falser.
