At HazChem, we know what we’re doing.
According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the simplest form of mercury is metallic or liquid mercury. The element is used in a number of products sold commercially, as well as in thermometers, other medical devices and industrial processes. While this form of mercury is not readily absorbed into the human body by touch or through the digestive tract, it vaporizes at room temperatures.
Without question, inhalation of these vapors can be harmful to your health.
(If a mercury spill occurs in the home, metallic mercury can pose a danger to you and your family if not properly cleaned up and removed.)
