Ameron International Corporation was incorporated in Delaware in 1986. Ameron International Corporation’s predecessors-in-interest include American Pipe & Construction Co. (formed in 1942), and Ameron (formed in 1970). Ameron manufactured, supplied and distributed various asbestos containing materials during the 1960s – 1970s.
These products included pipes, pipe fittings, pipe coatings, adhesives and mastic products under the following brand names:
Bondstrand 4000 pipe was manufactured to transport corrosive chemicals. Bondstrand 5000 pipe was manufactured to transport oxidizing agents and acids. These pipes were produced in 2 to 12 inch diameters, and up to 20 feet in length. Fittings were produced in various configurations.
The handling, cutting and other work with these products caused the release of hazardous levels of asbestos fiber and dust from the products into the breathing zone of the worker, thereby causing the worker to be exposed to unsafe levels of asbestos. Exposure to asbestos can cause asbestos-related diseases including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos as a result of handling or being involved with Bondstrand Series 4000 and 5000 pipe, RP-6A and RP-105 adhesives, Dimetcote, Somastic, NuKlad, Nu-Kem pipe coating Tideguard 171 pipe coatings, and Amercoat 42 Mastic, and if you think such exposure may have caused you or your loved one to become ill with mesothelioma or any other form of asbestos related disease, please contact the lawyers at Clapper, Patti Schweizer & Mason for more information.
