- PCBs were developed and used by many industries
for their fire retardant and insulating properties.
PCB hydraulic fluids were used at the GM Powertrain
Bedford Plant from 1965 to the early 1970’s
as a safety measure to prevent fires. PCBs were later
restricted by the federal government in 1978 through
the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
