Welding fumes and gases are very dangerous – from a chemical point of view, most welding fumes comprise of fumes from chemicals such as zinc oxide (ZnO), magnesium oxide (MgO), galvanized steel, Chromium and Cadmium.
In fact, stainless steel electrodes may contain up to 26 per cent chromium and 21 per cent nickel. Manganese as high as 14 per cent may also be present in certain types of steel electrodes, for example, high-manganese hardfacing electrodes. High-chromium hardfacing electrodes may contain up to 30 per cent chromium, present as chromium metal and chromium carbides.
One way to ensure workers are not breathing in these harmful and highly-toxic residues is to use a ducting technology like WeldFlex from Eximo, which will ensure any welding fumes you may generate will quickly and safely be removed from the workplace.
