People Who Held Down a Job at DAP, Inc. Before 1977 Are Now at High Risk for Lung Disease
Specializing in the manufacturing of home repair products and building materials such as caulk, sealant, cement, and spackling, DAP, Inc. was another company which employed asbestos for the better part of the last century. Ever since the Industrial Revolution, the use of asbestos had become more and more popular, as the fibrous mineral has numerous convenient aspects – fire resistance, durability, insulating properties, as well as low cost. The individuals who were most heavily exposed to asbestos at DAP, Inc. and are thereby now at risk for developing serious diseases were those who participated in the production of their building materials. Furthermore, construction workers and plumbers might have also come in contact with the company’s toxic products. While DAP, Inc. claimed that they ceased asbestos use in 1977, a study from 2007 found that two of their products, namely Crack Shot Spackling Paste and 33 Glazing Compound, still contained the carcinogenic agent.
As it is the case with the companies which made use of this harmful mineral, DAP, Inc. has been listed as defendant in thousands of lawsuits filed by injured workers since 1985. Because the diseases asbestos causes may take up to 50 years to ensue, cases of former employees falling ill are still arising throughout the country.
