This could be chromium, nickel, lead, zinc or cadmium. It is difficult to distinguish between them entirely from their appearance. It is advised that they are removed by machining. Lead plate for fuel tanks is known as ‘terne’; this is usually resistance welded in production when fumes may be kept under control by ventilation. Painted items could contain a number of metals. Yellow paint frequently contains lead. Other paints contain zinc, mercury, arsenic and copper. Anti-fouling paints are a potential problem.

Cutting processes use gases to react with the metal and raise it to its melting point, or as assist gases. Many lasers require a gas supply for the laser itself, or for shielding purposes or as assist gases in laser processing. With the exception of acetylene, propane and LPG, gases are supplied at pressures up to 300 bar (4300 lb in-2). Gas cylinders are thus pressure vessels and must be constructed and maintained to high standards. They require periodic examination and testing, which must be carried out by the owner of the cylinder; in most cases this would be the gas supplier.
