    The inherent hazards of solvent based adhesive and the potential operational risk of using adhesives in the manufacturing process. Avoiding this risk requires clear safety procedures, training, employee vigilance, and understanding of specific adhesiveness. All potentially hazardous substances must be handled in a responsible manner throughout the life cycle, from manufacturing to final recovery or disposal.

    Flammability and Explosibility are the main properties of solvent based adhesive. In addition, burners in contact with hot binders or equipment are potential safety problems when using hot binders such as hot melt adhesives. Many binders are mixtures of different ingredients, some of which may cause skin irritation, cause allergies or cause chemical burns. Volatile organic compounds or volatile organic compounds may enter the worker's respiratory system, causing toxins to stimulate or absorb directly into the body. Toxins may also enter the environment, causing damage to plants, animals and humans outside the plant.

    Toxic substances may enter the air where the workplace must be equipped with air replenishing equipment and filtered to ensure that the level of volatile organic matter does not reach the toxic level. You must prohibit diets in the work area, and employees should wear appropriate protective equipment such as safety glasses and gloves when entering or leaving the work area and clean the exposed skin.

    Even with solvent based adhesive, ventilation is critical to minimize toxins and, if necessary, use personal respirators as well. Unnecessary solvent evaporation can be eliminated by using a minimum amount of adhesive and keeping the solvent container sealed when not in use. Solvent-contaminated materials should not remain in an open state. The product literature must be carefully studied to understand the specific hazards of the particular solvent or adhesive used.

    Users are obliged to take these education and information seriously. Emergency and first aid procedures are recommended before an accident or health problem occurs. You must understand early toxic symptoms such as headache, dizziness, nausea or irritation to the skin or breathing difficulties. When using chlorinated solvents, burn, weld or heat sources (such as lights) should be eliminated.
