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
If you are diagnosed with a cancerous disease, you or a family member will deal with our staff over the phone and via emails ONLY, no need to travel at all. If you pass away before or during the process, surviving family members will receive the amount awarded by the claims.
If you receive the diagnosis of a noncancerous disease, we will need to do more testing (X-rays, breathing and blood tests) done at our medical facility in Birmingham, Alabama, where you will be accurately diagnosed.
Until the late 1970s, asbestos exposure also happened in plastic molding factories. Workers would constantly handle asbestos-containing molding compound during the manufacturing process. However, adding asbestos fibers to the product implied the highest health risk, as molders were in direct contact with airborne toxic particles. Afterward, excess material was removed by air blowing, which would only increase the concentration of asbestos fibers in the air.
