Prevention of allergic skin diseases caused by sensitising epoxy resin components

A publication in "Gefahrstoffe - Reinhaltung der Luft" (Hazardous Substances - Air Pollution Control) is dedicated to the work of the intersectoral working group on epoxy resins to avoid skin diseases triggered by contact with epoxy resin systems (Gefahrstoffe 81 (2021) No. 01-02; German only). FoBiG employee Karin Heine contributed to the article. Among other things, it contains a description of the evaluation of the sensitising potency of epoxy resin substances and their use for the comparison of technically similar products in the mixture calculator (“Gemischerechner”, German only). This was largely developed by FoBiG.
