About the Durabla Trust

The Durabla Manufacturing Company and Durabla Canada Ltd. Asbestos Trust (“Trust”) has been preparing to commence accepting claims filings. The Trust faces great uncertainty in the prediction of both the number and severity of claims that will be filed and the amount of assets available to pay those claims. Because of this uncertainty, the Trust Distribution Procedures were amended, after consultation with, and with the consent of, the TAC 1 and FCR 2 , to provide for an initial three-year and six month period during which the Trust will receive claims for filing (the “Initial Intake Period”). During the Initial Intake Period, no claims will be processed or paid. At the conclusion of the Initial Intake Period, the Trust will determine the payment percentage and consider any additional actions necessary to fulfill the purposes of the Trust. A claims processing fee may be required prior to the processing of any filed claims.
