A fume hood allows users to safely perform certain chemical operations without exposing themselves or other users to potentially harmful or noxious fumes. While not all chemical operations are permitted at think[box], the fume hood is intended to support mold-making, encapsulating electronics, certain electroplating operations, two-part epoxy curing, and other processes approved by think[box] on a case-by-case basis.
