1. Make sure you store opened containers and acrylic mixing bowls in a dark airtight...See more or as close as possible storage cabinet.
2. When mixing any monomer use a venting hood with a charcoal barrier. the mixing should take place in the immediate area so the fumes are drawn through the charcoal....or vent to the outside.
3. When processing place your processing equipment under a powered vented hood.
4. When disposing of old acrylic. rags, empty monomer bottles or any other item that may be contaminated take them directly outside to the trash or dumpster.
5. If you have a spill be sure to get everything clean and thrown out or washed.
When all these steps are followed you should have a minty fresh lab!
Ahh, the all nighter....been there done that! Some how the deadlines always get met. My kids grew up...See more in a dental lab too. Nice job Jessica. I am recently back from Afghanistan. Had a lab 18 years ago. Decided to reopen another after all this time. I look around and think if my accounts ever saw where I made choppers they would flip. Hope fully I will build a new addition next year and get above ground.
Continued success to you!
