Medical and environmental evaluations of a plant manufacturing sheet molded fiberglass reinforced plastic reveals xylene (1330207) concentrations in spray painting areas are not toxic to employees; fiberglass reinforced plastic dust is not present in toxic concentrations, but is the cause of active cases of dermatitis.
