EFFECTS OF SHORT TERM OVEREXPOSURE:

    COPPER (FUME): Excessive inhalation of copper fumes can produce an acute reaction known as “metal fume fever.” Symptoms consist of chills and fever (very similar to and easily confused with flu symptoms) which come on a few hours after large exposures.

    ZINC: Inhalation of high levels of zinc vapor (zinc oxide fumes) may result in tightness of chest, metallic taste, cough, dizziness, fever, chills, headache, nausea, and dry throat. Overexposure may produce symptoms known as metal fume fever or “zinc shakes”; an acute, self-limiting condition without

    recognized complications. Symptoms of metal fume fever include: chills, fever, muscular pain, nausea and vomiting.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Inhalation of dust may

    be an irritant to pre-existing respiratory conditions.

EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES: Symptoms resulting from inhalation overexposure

    usually disappear within 24 hours. Symptomatic treatment, such as bed rest and possibly aspirin is recommended to provide relief from fever and chills. Eye contact - flush areas with copious amounts of water. Skin contact - thoroughly wash affected areas with water. In all cases, consult physician for medical attention.

EFFECTS OF LONG TERM OVEREXPOSURE:

    COPPER (FUME): Chronic exposure to copper may result in anemia, but chronic poisoning does not occur.

    ZINC: Chronic exposure to zinc may cause respiratory tract irritation with nasopharyngitis and laryngitis.

    against dusting conditions.

    VENTILATION: Local exhaust or other ventilation that will reduce dust concentrations to less than permissible exposure limits.

PROTECTIVE GLOVES: Recommended to prevent skin irritation.

    EYE PROTECTION: Use safety eyewear for protection against airborne particulate matter.

OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Barrier creams may help prevent skin irritation in

    hypersensitive individuals.
