Título Sensitisation eczema due to allergic effect of a resin used in the printing trade
Título original Eczémas de sensibilisation à une résine utilisée en imprimerie. [en francés]
Información bibliográfica 2nd quarter 1977, No.87, Note No.1060-87-77, p.219-224. 6 ref.
Resumen On the rotary presses used for printing major daily newspapers, the metal plates are more and more frequently replaced by flexible stereos of photopolymerisable resins. Cases of eczema have been observed with a process of this type (Letterflex process). A field investigation completed by clinical examinations incriminated one of the resin components, pentaerythritol tetrakis (3-mercaptopropionate). Experiments made with guinea-pigs confirmed the highly allergenic character of this product. Preventive measures: automation of plate preparation process and handling of the resin; installation of efficient local exhaust ventilation; personal hygiene; use of frequently disposable gloves.
