Chromium particulate fume
Chromium is also used as a coating for other materials (such as chrome plating) to give corrosion protection to steel or to give a pleasing aesthetic appearance.
Chromium, as chromate, may also be found as a constituent of some industrial paints.
Welding or cutting materials containing chromium are likely to give chromium compounds in any particulate fume generated by the process. Whether it presents a significant hazard to health depends on the concentration and the duration of exposure.
