Title Study of the solubility of lead compounds used in glazing workshops
Original title Etude de la solubilité des composés du plomb utilisés dans les ateliers d'émaillage [in French]
Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 1992, No.146, Note No.1870-146-92, p.43-50. Illus. 14 ref.
Abstract This document assesses the state of research into the toxicity of industrial products containing lead compounds (lead silicates or "lead frits" as used in ceramic glazes, for example). Present findings are insufficient for any significant conclusions regarding the danger of these products. It is possible, however, to envisage the development of a large-scale toxicological study.
