Abstract
Recommendations for a standard for the thermal decomposition products of fluorocarbon polymers in the work place are presented, designed to protect the health and provide for the safety of employees up to a 10 hour work shift, 40 hour workweek, over a working lifetime. Since there is insufficient information on which to establish a safe environmental concentration of such products, none is recommended. The recommended standard emphasizes good work practices and engineering controls and medical management. Adherence to all provisions of the standard is required in work areas in which fluorocarbon polymers are used, regardless of the concentration of airborne products of fluorocarbon polymers.
