||Occupational sensitization to epoxy resin and reactive diluents in marble workers
||July 1996, Vol.35, No.1, p.11-16. 17 ref.
||Ten out of 22 marble workers handling a resin containing epoxy resin and ortho-cresyl glycidyl ether (CGE) developed contact dermatitis and airborne contact dermatitis within 20 days to 2 months of exposure. The 10 symptomatic subjects all showed positive patch test reactions to the reactive diluent CGE and four of them also to epoxy resin. Some other glycidyl ethers also gave positive reactions. Possible sensitization mechanisms are discussed. The problem was partly solved by changing the type of glycidyl ether and installing exhaust ventilation along the resination line.
