Asbestos Exposure on Frigates

US Navy Frigates

Differing significantly from prior ship designs known as “Frigates,” these vessels were designed and built during and after World War II to function as support ships. U.S. Navy Frigates primarily served to defend convoys, with a focus on an anti-submarine combat.

As with other ships constructed during and just following WWII, Frigates had many components made from or coated with asbestos. The boilers, pumps, turbines, valves, and other propulsion equipment were all made from or contained asbestos, thus making exposure especially prevalent in the fire rooms below deck. Veterans who served on Frigates built during World War II likely dealt with regular asbestos inhalation, placing them at risk of developing mesothelioma.
