In the expanding composite industry, multiple materials including a reinforcing fiber and a resin matrix  are processed through cutting, milling, machining, and polishing. These processes result in copious amounts of airborne dust, particles and fibers that usually take one of two forms: high, dense volumes of dust within bulk processing or fine, sharp dusts from specialized processing. Both are very hazardous and combustible.

Consequently, there are many potential hazards common to manufacturing composites. Combustible dust, which is most prevalent within high volumes of dust, is the most feared since explosions are unpredictable and can quickly destroy valuable resources and endanger employees' lives. Fine composite dusts can penetrate the skin and cause outbreaks. Vapors from fluids and materials used in processing have been found to contain toxic organic compounds associated with the fibers. This causes inhalation hazards, a toxic workplace, and reinforces the dangers of airborne composite substances.

Exposure to these dusts and vapors is governed by OSHA and monitored by other organizations. We highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the statutory parameters. View Laws & Regulations

To minimize these risks, implement quality air filtration products and systems. Below is an outline of the solutions we recommend.
