American Biltrite Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

American Biltrite Inc. has been manufacturing and distributing floor tiles, sheet flooring and rubber products for over a century now.  From 1961 until 1985 they have produced floor tiles containing asbestos and sheet vinyl flooring, on and off from 1962 until 1980. Though it was known ever since the 1920s that asbestos fibers are a health risk, manufacturers continued to use it, thus putting their workers at risk.

If You Were an Employee at American Biltrite Inc., You Might Be at Risk of Developing an Asbestos-Related Disease

Asbestos was heavily used in various construction products up until the 1980s when laws have started to be made in order to regulate its use. The fibers that arise from products containing asbestos are minuscule, thus rendering them invisible to the human eye and making them a hazard for human health. To create floor tiles, raw asbestos fiber, color pigments, and other materials were mixed, then heated, formed into rolls and cooled so that they could be cut. In the process of cutting, small fibers were rising in the air, thus contaminating it. Individuals working with these types of flooring products that contain asbestos might now run the risk of getting diagnosed with lung disease.
