Title Cold-impregnated aluminium. A new source of nickel exposure
Bibliographic information July 1994, Vol.31, No.1, p.22-24. 14 ref.
Abstract A case of work-related allergic contact dermatitis in an engraver with nickel allergy is reported. Investigations revealed that the majority of aluminium sheets he was working with were positive to the dimethylglyoxime test, indicating that nickel was being released. It is concluded that cold-impregnated aluminium is a new source of nickel exposure probably previously unknown to dermatologists.
