What should I know about DTF adhesive powder fumes, and how can I work with it safely?


Adhesive powder fumes can be dangerous: there is some chemical toxicity you need to be mindful of - in particular:

  • allergic reactions: exposure to any chemicals can cause allergic reactions for some people. Symptoms will appear on your skin, generally - itching and rashes.

  • respiratory irritation: breathing in adhesive powder fumes can irritate your respiratory system. Symptoms will be coughing, becoming short of breath and throat irritation.

  • flammability and explosiveness. Adhesive powders can be flammable or explosive under certain conditions (from 350 degrees and little to no humidity, the powder will start to pose a fire hazard).

You can significantly reduce the risks associated with adhesive powder fumes and create a safer working environment with some easy ways:

  • work in a well-ventilated area and ensure you have a good ventilation system to extract the fumes.

  • wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks and gloves.

  • wear long sleeves to prevent skin contact with adhesive powders.

  • follow safety guidelines and regulations for handling and storing the powder.

  • read and follow the material safety data sheets (MSDS) (see below)

  • immediately clean any spills or residue to prevent accidental contact or inhalation.

  • seal your powder in containers or zip-lock bags when not in use.

  • store in a cool, dry place to prevent degradation and release of fumes. 

Generally; ensure that first aid kits are easily accessible and that workers are trained in their use.
