Título Allergic contact dermatitis due to 1,2-benzisothiazolin-3-one in gum arabic
Información bibliográfica Sep. 1984, Vol.II, No.3, p.146-149. 9 ref.
Resumen Proxel GXL (1,2-benzisothiazolin-3-one) is a preservative widely used in industry. The manufacturer states that it is a known skin irritant and sensitiser, but these facts are not well known. In the given case, a lithoprinter developed a contact allergy to the compound when it was used in the gum arabic solution used to coat printing rollers. Proxel GXL should be included in the patch test battery used for printers and other workers who may encounter the compound in engineering fluids, adhesives, paints, etc.
