Asbestos Compound

Workers could have been exposed to asbestos while mixing these powdered products. The exposure would have continued if the dried mixture was sanded after, creating great amounts of dust to be inhaled by the workers.

Compounds were used in a variety of industries and unfortunately asbestos was one of the main ingredients of these mixtures. This product was of two types: a dry mix that needed liquid for it to be applied, or a ready-mix, found usually in paste form.

The toxicity of the environment got dangerously high as the workers mixed the compound in dry powder form due to the asbestos particles that were spread around them. Another way for the workers to be unknowingly exposed to asbestos was sanding the newly applied layer of compound. You could have been exposed if:

  • You directly handled the asbestos-contaminated compound
  • You found yourself on construction sites where asbestos compound was used
  • You found yourself working in old structures
  • You performed demolition work
  • You did remodeling work in old buildings
