Plastic Molders

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

The molding compound that was used by these workers was not only posing a threat to their health but also to the health of the consumers that bought the finished products. In a plastic molding factory asbestos exposure was happening during the entire process – from the delivery of the molding compound through production to the shipment of the final products.

The truck drivers were exposed to the asbestos particles when they were loading and unloading the bags of compound, the molders had to mix the compound and in the process, they were inhaling the same microscopic particles that were removed later on when the excess material was air-blown by the machinery they had to use.

Diseases Contracted after Asbestos Exposure in Plastic Molders

Plastic molders would work with raw asbestos during the last century, as the material made the product more resistant, which is why they are today at high risk of being diagnosed with terrible diseases. Following inhalation or ingestion, asbestos fibers remain in the body forever and can reach organs such as the lungs, the colon or the stomach, where they gradually cause inflammation and tissue scarring. Thus, within 20 to 50 years of your first exposure, a disease may occur if you were a plastic molder.
