Abstract
On the basis of environmental sampling, no health hazard from exposure to vinyl-chloride (75014) resulting from the use of PVC based inks in the screen printing process at the Russell Corporation is determined to exist. The lower limit of detection for vinyl- chloride using approved sampling and analytical methods is approximately 0.25 ppm. A screen cleaning process utilizing mineral spirits is found to cause skin problems. Process changes and personal protective devices are discussed as a means of reducing skin problems in the screen cleaning process.
