Known Asbestos Exposure at Chemical Plants

Many chemical plant operators were aware of the dangers of asbestos before they were required to stop using asbestos containing materials and remove any asbestos that was used in currently operating machinery.

Unfortunately, a large number of chemical workers were heavily exposed to asbestos and as a result are now being diagnosed with deadly cancers and other serious conditions. This is why, at The Throneberry Law Group, we focus on providing mesothelioma victims with the strongest legal strategy possible to obtain compensation.

Materials at Chemical Plants Contain Asbestos

Chemical plants across the country utilized asbestos in a number of complicated processes and machinery, including the following:

  • Chemical boilers
  • Chemical incinerators
  • Duct and delivery system wrappings
  • Extruders
  • Floor tiles
  • Fuel storage areas
  • Furnaces
  • Generators
  • Heat exchanges
  • Machine friction applications
  • Ovens
  • Pipe insulation
  • Pumps
  • Reactors
  • Sealants
  • Tanks
  • Wallboards
  • Workspace assembly surfaces

Much of the materials produced at chemical plants also contained asbestos, including deodorants and hairspray. Some factories even made protective worker clothing that contained asbestos due to the material’s heat and fire resistant abilities. As a result of exposure to these parts and products, many workers were exposed to asbestos and have subsequently been diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Michael Throneberry gave me a whole new outlook on attorneys'! A very caring person who was more concerned with my health than a case. Truly unexpected! He explained possible conditions in english and even found the right doctors in my area. Prepared me for the right questions to ask the doctors so that I can understand my illness better. A great person and a great human being! Thank you. Greg
