The Reardon Company established Bondex in 1959. Bondex manufactured a variety of building materials, like joint compound, plaster, and wall and ceiling textures.
From 1961 to 1977, many Bondex products contained asbestos. Exposure to asbestos can cause serious health issues like mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer that develops decades after exposure.
Bondex asbestos products were used for residential, commercial and industrial applications. Bondex’s residential products were marketed as do-it-yourself items for home repairs.
Although the company quit using asbestos in its products in 1977, the damage had already been done. Thousands of workers, consumers and their families had been exposed.
After using asbestos in their products for decades, Bondex faced thousands of mesothelioma lawsuits from workers, consumers and their families.
To manage the growing costs of asbestos litigation and resolve all of these claims, Bondex and its holding company Specialty Products Holding Corp. filed for bankruptcy in 2010.
As a condition of filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Bondex had to set aside money in an asbestos bankruptcy trust fund. This trust fund provides compensation to those who suffer from asbestos-related illnesses as a result of exposure to Bondex products. In 2016, the Bondex Asbestos Personal Injury Trust was established.
You may qualify for compensation from the Bondex asbestos trust if you were diagnosed with mesothelioma after being exposed to the company’s products.
Due to the natural strength and durability of its fibers, asbestos was commonly used in many Bondex construction and building materials.
Bondex made and sold a variety of asbestos-containing products, including:
Bondex joint compound and ready-to-use joint cement was used for taping drywall and texturing. Bondex patches were used for interior and exterior patching and resurfacing.
Although Bondex stopped using asbestos in their products in 1977, many Bondex asbestos products may still be in place in some settings (like older structures built before the company stopped using asbestos).
In addition to those who worked at Bondex, everyday consumers and those who worked in a number of different occupations may have come in contact with Bondex asbestos-containing products and building materials.
Occupations at risk of exposure to Bondex asbestos products may include:
Unfortunately, workers in these positions may have also unknowingly brought asbestos fibers home with them, exposing their loved ones as well.
If you worked with or around Bondex asbestos products and were later diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma, you may be able to hold the company accountable and pursue compensation for your illness.
