Put a cup of it- where? Into the vats themselves? How was air introduced into this? Maybe some more info on exactly how this substance you're asking about was used might help.

Radiator shops use a variety of chemicals/acids, etc. like hydrochloric and zinc chloride fluxes, sulphamic acid for hard water, lime, and scale build up, oxalic acid can be used to remove rust. They ALL can give off fumes.
