From long-standing worries regarding the use of lead and asbestos to recent research into carcinogenic issues related to the use of plastics in construction, there is growing concern regarding the potential toxic effects of building materials on health. Toxicity of building materials provides an essential guide to this important problem and its solutions. Beginning with an overview of the material types and potential health hazards presented by building materials, the book goes on to consider key plastic materials. Materials responsible for formaldehyde and volatile organic compound emissions, as well as semi-volatile organic compounds, are then explored in depth, before a review of wood preservatives and mineral fibre-based building materials. Issues related to the use of radioactive materials and materials that release toxic fumes during burning are the focus of subsequent chapters, followed by discussion of the range of heavy metals, materials prone to mould growth, and antimicrobials. Finally, Toxicity of building materials concludes by considering the potential hazards posed by waste based/recycled building materials, and the toxicity of nanoparticles. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Toxicity of building materials is an invaluable tool for all civil engineers, materials researchers, scientists and educators working in the field of building materials. Provides an essential guide to the potential toxic effects of building materials on healthComprehensively examines materials responsible for formaldehyde and volatile organic compound emissions, as well as semi-volatile organic compoundsLater chapters focus on issues surrounding the use of radioactive materials and materials that release toxic fumes during burning

In the past, toxicity aspects have been a field outside the boundaries of the construction industry, with its practitioners belonging to the realm of health professionals. That is why architects, civil engineers and other professionals involved in the construction industry have so little knowledge about this area. Therefore, a new approach to building materials is needed-a more integrative one that is capable of joining the best efforts of construction practitioners and health specialists. Bringing together important contributions from several international

"Building Materials for the Environmentally Hypersensitive was prepared to help individuals and builders select building materials that have minimal negative effects on the health of environmentally hypersensitive occupants. The materials included arethose typically used in residential construction in cold climates. Two kinds of information were used in evaluating the materials: 1) known or published information about the products; and 2) the experiences of hypersensitive individuals with these materials. The responses of hypersensitive individuals to the building materials were used as an indicator

The construction industry is bombarded with ever-changing building materials—components of which are more and more difficult, if not impossible, to identify. Building material emissions have been implicated as a major source of indoor air pollution, and toxic gases, often unidentified, are generated in building fires. Building Materials: Product Emission and Combustion Health Hazards undertakes the task of identifying building materials emission and combustion health hazards. This practical guide introduces the complex world of polymers commonly used in building materials
