Toxic Dust

Independent tests show that dust from Norlite contains razor sharp glass and silica and is an immediate threat to residents. The dust samples were gathered from a nearby attic and car windshield. Norlite’s own Material Safety Data Sheets show that the dust can cause silicosis, a progressive, incurable, and deadly lung disease.
