Abstract
The concentrations of toluene-2,4,-diisocyanate (TDI) are not found toxic at levels measured in the molded foam department of a large tire and rubber company (SIC-3011), though airborne concentrations are considered potentially toxic to employees at the foam line in the slab department. Particles of the mold release wax are found to cause temporary irritant symptoms among some pad pullers. Exposure to polyvinyl-chloride resins is not believed to pose a health hazard to employees in either department under conditions obtaining at the time of evaluation.
