What is Cement Allergy?
Cement Allergy is the most allergic reactions that occur in the respiratory tracts in the cement working labor arms. Micro, macro, climatic workplace environment together with dusts in the air are the most important causes of these diseases.
Chronic bronchitis, often associated with epilepsy, is the most common form of respiratory distress in this work. Chromium salts combine with proteins that are present in the deeper and produce an allergic condition. Along with all of these, cement is an alkaline powder, causing dermatitis.
What are the signs for Cement Allergy?
Normal Portland cement does not cause silicosis since it does not contain free silica. However, since the cement types which are resistant to acids contain free silica particles, it is absolutely dangerous to get silicosis when exposed.
Silica particles are the most common dust that people working in quarries. When the rocks containing the silica material are broken, when they break apart and crumble, respirable silica powders form. The inhalation of these dusts is really dangerous.
When this tobacco is exposed for a certain period of time, a type of pneumoconiosis called silicosis develops. It also causes autoimmune disorders such as tuberculosis, lung cancer and arthritis. Silica dust is much more dangerous when the soil is excavated. The re-breathing of the silica dust, which had previously appeared and remained in place, is not as dangerous as breathing fresh powder from the newly extracted stones. Some cement types contain diatomaceous earth and pumice stone. When diatomaceous earth is heated, cristobalite forms. Cristobalite is a more pathogenic crystal of quartz. This crystal can cause concomitant tuberculosis.
How is Cement Allergy treated?
At the beginning of protecting cement allergy and cement-related diseases mentioned above, it is effective not to stay in cement dust for a long time, to apply simple safety precautions, to perform routine health checks and to prevent temporary and permanent diseases.
