£24.99 Inc VAT (£20.83 Ex VAT)
Available on back-order
Tests the presence of ions of silver to a high degree of accuracy to detect contamination in water, the body and a wide range of materials.
While silver itself is not considered to be toxic, most of its salts are poisonous. Silver compounds can be absorbed in the circulatory system and reduced silver deposited in the various tissues of the body. A condition, known as argyria, results with a greyish pigmentation of the skin and mucous membranes.
Effects of Silver:
- May cause severe corneal injury if liquid comes in contact with the eyes.
- May cause skin irritation. Repeated and prolonged contact with skin may cause allergic dermatitis.
- Inhalation hazards: exposure to high concentrations of vapours may cause dizziness, breathing difficulty, headaches or respiratory irritation. Extremely high concentrations may cause drowsiness, staggering, confusion, unconsciousness, coma or death.
- Liquid or vapour may be irritating to skin, eyes, throat, or lungs.
- May cause stomach discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and narcosis if inhaled. Aspiration of material into lungs if swallowed or if vomiting occurs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal.
Chronic overexposure to a component or components in silver has been suggested as a cause of the following effects in humans:
- Cardiac abnormalities
- Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage.
- Repeated breathing or skin contact of methyl ethyl ketone may increase the potency of neurotoxins such as hexane if exposures occur at the same time.
