IMPORTANT: Welding fumes cannot be classified simply. The composition and quantity are dependent upon the metal being welded,
the process, procedure and electrode used. Other conditions which also influence the composition and quantity of the fumes and
gases to which workers may be exposed include: number of welds and volume of work area, quality and amount of ventilation,
position of welder's head with respect to the fume plume, as well as the presence of contaminants in the atmosphere, such as
chlorinated hydrocarbon vapors from cleaning and degreasing activities.
When the electrode is consumed, the fume and gas decomposition products are different in percent and form from the ingredients
listed in Hazardous Ingredients. The decomposition products, not the ingredients in the electrode, are important from a health
standpoint. Decomposition products include those originating from the volatilization, reaction, or oxidation of the materials shown in
Hazardous Ingredients plus those from the base metal, coating, etc. as noted above. These components are virtually always present as
complex compounds and not as metals.
