Topic Subject : Re: Re: an important safety question mark

Hi haven't said much for a long time however about the dust control, if the health and saftey inspector passed your studio for public use then it should be fine.
but still use a mask you can never be to careful, ask if your clients suffer from breathing problems which may be dust related. All my mixing be it Alginate or Plaster etc takes place in a small unit about the size of a large shower unit looks a bit like one to, it has a large extractor fan in the roof and doors that I shut behind me its a bit cramped but it gets clients away from the dust problem.

Interesting statement about the silica free Alginate, and from a very good reliable company, it must be true or else a company like them would not be able to make such a statment, silica is very dangerous however as someone said it does take a good few years to have any effect, I do have a yearly lung partical test but that is mainly to do with all the clay I make and use glazes have silica.
