Where Can I Find PCBs?


PCBs were widely used for industrial, electrical and construction applications prior to the ban in 1979. Due to the material itself or a cross-contamination into some other media, areas most likely to be impacted by PCBs include painted surfaces, porous surfaces (such as cement), window and door frames, HVAC systems, masonry joints, expansion joints, roofs, ceilings and underlying soil.

Below is a list of commonly used, PCB-containing materials:    

  • Caulking
  • Grout
  • Sealants
  • Paints
  • Coatings
  • Adhesives
  • Insulation Materials
  • Ceiling Tiles
  • Roofing Materials
  • HVAC Equipment
  • Roofing and Siding Materials
  • Hydraulic Fluids
  • Inks and Dyes
  • Carbonless Copy Paper
  • Electrical Equipment
  • Transformers & Capacitors
  • Heat Transfer Equipment
  • Electrical Light Ballasts
  • Small Capacitors in Electric Motors
  • Lubricating and Cutting Oils
