||Health risks from new technologies using the example of aluminium welding
||Gesundheitsgefahren durch neue Technologien am Beispiel des Aluminiumschweissens [in German]|
||June 2004, Vol.54, No.6, p.202-207. Illus. 23 ref.
||Because of its interesting properties, aluminium is increasingly used in a wide variety of applications including vehicles and storage tanks. New techniques for the welding of aluminium have been developed for these applications. This article discusses the toxic effects related to aluminium welding, mainly due to the inhalation of welding fumes, and the risks from working with aluminium-containing components, together with the related prevention measures (threshold limit values, biological exposure limits, determination in urine, medical supervision).
