Synthetic resins

Synthetic resin is a high molecular compounds, formed by the reactions of polymerization and condensation of chemicals (styrene, ethylene, vinyl chloride, epichlorohydrin and other). Obtaining products of synthetic resins, glues, varnishes, plastics, construction materials and so on) is carried out by means of pressing, casting, molding, spray application. In the manufacture of varnishes, glues, putty and compounds resin mixed with hardener, plasticizer, filler or solvent. The majority of synthetic resins in its final form at normal temperature chemically inert and have low toxicity. Some of them have irritant effect on the skin (epoxy, phenol-formaldehyde, silicon). Many synthetic resins are allergens.
In resin and when using the work premises can be contaminated vapors and dust source products, sometimes in combination with high temperature. Working with synthetic resins may develop dermatitis and eczema, sometimes accompanied by irritation of eyes and upper respiratory tract, in some cases, allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma.
When working avoid contact with resin - work gloves, apply protective creams, observe rules of personal hygiene. You should not remove tar from the skin solvents (toluene, acetone and others). After washing his hands to lubricate softening ointment on a fatty basis. Workers who have persistent skin and allergic diseases, transferred to another job. The required exhaust ventilation at sources of gas and dust emissions, seats heating resins and their components.
