I'm cutting and etching sheets of teflon in a laser cutter. The laser is well ventilated but there is still a very strong odor.
I did a number of small cuts yesterday and did not develop any symptoms such as polymer fume fever but I still worry for my health.
What kind of safety mask would be appropriate for these kind of fumes? Do I also need to take additional measures for my eyes (fumes only-- the laser cutter has a hood)?
