A.P. Green Industries initially opened in the 1910s and produced warship boilers used in World War I and World War II.  Even though A.P. Green Industries knew of the dangers of asbestos they used this dangerous mineral in its products through 1973.  Many of their refractory products remain in aging machinery today and continue to expose workers to harmful asbestos.

A.P. Green Industries designed firebricks, also known as refractory bricks.  They were used in kilns, boilers, fireplaces, furnaces and fireboxes in temperatures reaching up to 1,000 degrees.

A.P. Green Industries factory workers used clay and asbestos to create fire-resistant brick.  They manufactured many products which contained asbestos.  Plant workers, their families and those who lived near the plants were susceptible to asbestos exposure with airborne asbestos fibers.   Some of their asbestos containing products are SK-7 Cement, Castable Block Mix, Kast-O-Lite Gunning Refractory; Green Pc, Insulation Adhesive, Insulation Coating, Insulating Cement, Mixxou GR Gunnig Refractory, Greencast, Dropsy Fry, Therm-O-Flake Block Insulation, Therm-O-Flake Flake Coating, Loose Wool Insulation, and Steelplant Castable.

A bankruptcy trust (the APG Asbestos Trust) was established in 2006 to compensate individuals who were injured from exposure to A.P. Green Industries asbestos containing products before January 2, 1968.  If you were exposed to asbestos products manufactured by A.P. Green you may have the legal right to file a claim for money damages against the bankruptcy trust for your asbestos exposure and injuries.
