ONTARIO
HI Everyone, I am trying to find out if a large condutor that I salvaged recently for scrap has asbestos in the outer wrapping,
I tried to research it on the net,
It was a 400 amp service to a overhead bus,
I dont know the age but I wiil go 40-50 years plus, it looks like a cloth outer wrap and right under that is a very dry powdery tape type material, then the usual looking insulation very old and cracked all over after rolling it up.
I planned on skinning it and selling it for scrap but I am concerned for the possible health risks.
Thanks Shelby

1st, welcome
Second:
I have seen what I think you are talking about within Industrial gear, and it was asbestos.

For liability and legal reasons, a certified, licensed abatement contractor is required.
