1-bromopropane (1-BP) is an industrial solvent that is used to replace ozone-depleting chemicals. Chronic exposure to high concentrations of 1-bromopropane (1-BP) vapor has been found to be highly toxic to nerves.

Several factory workers using adhesive sprays developed severe symptoms of nerve damage, including leg or foot pain and muscle weakness and spasms. Even 15 months after the exposure, some of the workers complain of chronic nerve pain, and one still requires assistance in walking.

Poor ventilation in the factory resulted in concentrations of 1-BP of 130 ppm (parts per million) - much higher that the 25 ppm recommended by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).

If you have been exposed to 1-BP containing glue, and experience symptons such as numbness in your toes, leg or foot pain, muscle weakness or spasms, please see your doctor immediately.

If you feel you qualify for damages or remedies that might be awarded in a possible 1-BP class action please fill in our form on the right to submit your complaint.
