Analytical chemistry of metalworking fluids for dermal and inhalation toxicology studies
In support of a National Toxicology Program (NTP) study on metalworking fluids (MWF), NIOSH was provided samples of the fluids being tested in that study [NTP 2004]. Aliquots of these fluids were shared with NIOSH researchers for local lymph node assays (LLNA), skin penetration tests, and chemical analyses. A method for their analysis is described and preliminary results are reported. The analytical results of this method will provide data to researchers of the NTP, LLNA, and dermal penetration studies and likely impact their conclusions.
Assessing dermal exposures to epoxy resins in the windblade manufacturing industry
This presentation describes a recent health hazard evaluation (HHE) conducted by NIOSH involving dermal exposure to epoxy resins. In addition, a newly developed NIOSH surface/skin method will be introduced.
Dermal absorption of cutting fluid mixtures
This work has focused on understanding how cutting fluid additives, contaminants, and metal-working cleanser can influence the dermal disposition of potential skin irritants.
