||Fever induced by fluorine-containing lubricant on stainless steel tubes.
||Aug. 1980, Vol.37, No.3, p.307-309. Illus. 4 ref.
||Three men, all smokers, handling a particular batch of stainless steel tubes suffered repeated attacks of malaise, chills, and fever, mainly after gas brazing, but also simply after handling the tubes. The presence of fluorine on the tubes and in the tobacco they used was shown. A fluorocarbon polymer lubricant was suspected of causing the attacks, which were avoided by heating the tubes to 1000░C.
