Title Sensitization to epoxy resin systems in special flooring workers
Bibliographic information Sep. 1994, Vol.31, No.3, p.157-160. 3 ref.
Abstract A study was made of 15 male construction workers who specialized in the application of special floor coverings containing epoxy resins and derivatives. All the workers had work-related dermatoses as a result of sensitization to the resins. Speed of sensitization, severity of lesions and localization to the hands, face and legs were characteristic. Little could be determined about the types of resins used. Preventive measures are suggested.
