Glass Fibers

HOW CAN Glass Fibers AFFECT MY HEALTH?

Wheezing
Coughing
Itchy, flaky skin
Skin rash and blisters
Difficulty breathing

Short-term exposure can cause itching of the eyes and skin, often referred to as “fiberglass itch” and disappears within a few hours. Prolonged fiberglass exposure causes tiny fibers to become embedded in the lung tissue and upper respiratory system. This can cause trouble breathing and exacerbate asthma symptoms.
