Investigating the emissions of nanomaterials from composites and other solid articles during machining processes

By Safe Work Australia.  Publication date : March, 18, 2013

The report finds that significant quantities of material, which can present health risk, are emitted from composites by high energy machining processes like cutting with an electric disc saw or band saw. If the composite contains a hazardous nanomaterial, the health risk from the dust may be higher. Lower energy processes like manual cutting will result in lower exposures and lower potential health risk.
