Allied Chemical and Dye Corporation, Omaha, Nebraska

Allied Chemical & Dye Corporation, now a part of Honeywell International, Inc., was founded in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1870. Allied began as General Chemical, a small sulfuric acid company started by William H. Nichols. General Chemical joined forces with five other chemical firms in 1920, becoming the Allied Chemical and Dye Corporation. It changed names several more times before becoming AlliedSignal in 1993, then it merged into Honeywell International, Inc., in 1999.

Chemical Products Made By AlliedSignal

With its long history of producing chemical products, AlliedSignal played an important role in shaping the “specialty materials” division of Honeywell. These high-performance products are based off of chemical production. Some specialty materials produced by Honeywell include:

  • Lubricants
  • Sealants
  • Polymers
  • Hydrofluoric acid
  • Refrigerants
  • Boron trifluoride
  • Sulfur hexafluoride

Although the original Allied site in Omaha, Nebraska is no longer a key lab for Honeywell, the company still maintains an air conditioning and refrigerant division in Nebraska.

Asbestos in Chemical Plants

Many older chemical corporations like Allied Chemical and Dye Corporation may have exposed workers and nearby residents to asbestos. Asbestos is a fibrous material that was often used for insulation in chemical plants prior to the 1980s due to its ability to resist heat, flame, chemicals, and electricity. If inhaled, asbestos can lead to health problems such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer, and gastrointestinal cancers.

For More Information

Diseases like mesothelioma may not appear for 15-30 years after initial asbestos exposure. Thus, you or someone you love may have been exposed to asbestos at sites like Allied Chemical and Dye Corporation.
