BESIDES BURNING THE HOUSE DOWN, WHY IS IT SO DANGEROUS TO IGNORE THE SMELL?
A little background-
In 1899, British Patent was taken out for using phenol-formaldehyde resins in electrical insulation.
Famed for its `fishy’ smell when hot, Bakelite* a plastic made from phenol and formaldehyde resin was widely used as for both heat and electrical insulators.
The malodorous stench is a warning that it can burn your home down… while you are gone or while you are sleeping.
Formaldehyde has been found to cause seizures. The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) advises has been shown to cause cancer in humans. The National Cancer Institute warns of the dangers of formaldehyde.
*Sterncrest Pipe Company produced a smoking pipe with a Redmanol bit
and the bottom portion of the bowl made of Redmanol a phenol-formaldehyde resin similar to Bakelite. (Think what happens when the pipe gets hot from the tobacco and someone sucks that straight into their lungs!)
