Abstract
The potential for employee exposure to acrylates or methacrylates was investigated by a walk through industrial hygiene survey at the Inmont facility of BASF Corporation (SIC-2851, SIC-2893), Cincinnati, Ohio. Radiation curable coatings and ink vehicles have been produced at this facility for the previous 7 years. Coatings are formulated in a mixing tank with a high speed agitator. Two enclosed reactors were used to formulate the ink vehicles. The work force is composed of 205 employees, 41 of whom function in areas where exposure to the suspect chemicals is likely. The job titles of these individuals include mixer (possible exposure time of 3 to 4 hours per day), filler loader (3 to 4 hours per day exposure time), hopper tank and tub cleaner (1/2 hour per day), set kettle cook (16 hours per month), varnish processor (3 to 4 hours during batch charging and filling times), laboratory chemist, stock handler, elevator operator, porter, and dry color mixer. No industrial hygiene data for multifunctional acrylates had been collected and no illnesses attributable to the chemicals have been reported at the facility. There is a structured medical program at the facility with a safety program and a general industrial hygiene program. Adequate personnel records have been kept for all employees. No recommendations were considered necessary.
