Brake Shoes And Asbestos Exposure
“[I]f you have enjoyed a good life while working with asbestos products why not die from it.” — 1966 memo by the Director of Purchasing for Bendix Corporation
Brake manufacturers, such as Bendix, Abex, Carlisle, Maremont and Grizzly knew about the risks their products posed to workers and consumers, including the risk of asbestosis, asbestos lung cancer and mesothelioma. But asbestos was an easily manufactured and profitable material, making it lucrative to put safety on the back burner.
Until new regulations in 2003 banned the practice, asbestos was commonly used in brake linings for cars, trucks, buses, trains and other vehicles. As a result, millions of brake manufacturing workers, mechanics and others were exposed to asbestos.
