Abstract
Personal time-weighted average samples, area samples, detector tube samples and bulk samples for the raw materials used in the extrusion process were analyzed for vinyl-chloride (75014), azodicarbonamide (123773), dioctyl-phthalate (117817), dimethyl-phthalate (131113), carbon-monoxide (630080), carbon-dioxide (124389), hydrogen-chloride (7647010) and ammonia (7664417) at Technology Products, Incorporated (SIC-3070), in Longmont, Colorado, on July 29, 1980. The evaluation was requested by a representative of the management of behalf of 40 affected workers. Concentrations of dioctyl-phthalate ranged from NIOSH standard of 5mg/CuM. All other substances were nondetectable. The author concludes that no health hazard exists for the substances evaluated, but recommends that each operator wear safety goggles and ear protection while grinding plastic materials until a noise evaluation is performed.
