High Risk of Lung Disease for Former Republic Powdered Metals Workers
Still operating at the moment, Republic Powdered Metals is a company specializing in the production of industrial paints and coatings. They had employed asbestos for the second half of the last century, as the mineral would increase the quality and lifespan of their products. In addition to workers per se, the following occupational groups are now at risk for developing a disease as a result of asbestos exposure: roofers, masons, painters. Some of the most popular brand names under which Republic Powdered Metals commercialized their building materials were Guardian, Chemspec, Kop-Coat, Mohawk, Valvtect, as well as Day-Glo. As of 2010, the company was hit with over 20,000 lawsuits, which prompted it to seek bankruptcy protection. Shortly after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, Republic Powdered Metals established a trust fund, which now provides asbestos victims with compensation.
