Title Occupational allergic contact dermatitis from alkanolamineborates in metalworking fluids
Bibliographic information Jan. 1995, Vol.32, No.1, p.24-27. 4 ref.
Abstract Case reports of three workers with contact allergy to alkanolamineborates are presented. Tests revealed two types of reactivity patterns, indicating the existence of at least two separate sensitizers in these substances. Each alkanolamineborate consists of many substances, which differ in part between different alkanolamineborates; the sensitizers in these substances are not known. The study indicates that it is not possible to use just one particular alkanolamineborate for tracing contact allergy to alkanolamineborates in general.
