American Standard Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

American Standard Inc. was founded over 90 years ago, through the merger of American Radiator Company and Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company. They manufactured mainly plumbing fixtures, HVAC systems and automotive braking systems. All of these products contained asbestos fibers, which may have put their workers at risk of developing a related lung disease. If you are a former employee of American Standard, you might be at risk.

Former American Standard Inc. Employees Need to Pay Closer Attention to Their Health

Up until 1980, asbestos was a very common component in a various number of products, because of its properties of strength, heat, and water resistance and its very low cost. As a result, many manufacturers have chosen to use it, despite warnings of its toxicity as early as the 1920s. American Standard Inc., as well as its divisions, have manufactured asbestos products. All over the US, plant workers may have been exposed to asbestos fibers, by manufacturing boilers, radiators, HVAC systems and brakes. All of these products incorporated asbestos either for insulation or for strengthening.

Asbestos fibers can get released into the air even by simply handling products containing it, more so if the process of manufacturing said products involves direct contact with it. These fibers can get trapped in the lungs and accumulate over time, creating an inflammation that can later lead to asbestos-related lung diseases.
