DAP, Inc.

The company started in 1865 as a sealing wax producer. In 1913, one of its founders, Robert H. Dicks, partnered up with George Pontius and formed the Dicks-Pontius Company expanding its activities by starting to produce putty and caulk. The company started to grow and purchase different companies during the 1950’s. A merger took place between Dicks-Pontius and the Armstrong Company in 1957 which led to the name change to DAP – Dicks-Armstrong-Pontius. In 1987, USG acquired DAP until 1999 when RPM International became its new and current owner. Until 1977, DAP used asbestos in manufacturing some of its products like caulk and sealer. The company ignored the fact that this toxic mineral posed a health risk for the people using its products.

Although the majority of people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases have been exposed in the workplace, secondary exposure is common as well. If you are diagnosed with a malignant or non-malignant disease and have a family member who worked at DAP, there is a high chance your illness is the result of secondary asbestos exposure. Because most companies did not require employees to wear protective equipment on the job, you could have easily inhaled fibers of asbestos which remained on your loved one’s clothes.
