Evaluation of potential exposure to dust from a parting compound, and to gaseous and particulate matter evolved when inner tubes are removed from vulcanizing molds. The use of enclosures, ventilation, and respirators for the vulcanization area is recommended for the following reasons: the parting compound contains 7% free silica (7631869), relatively high levels of airborne particulate matter, and unknown potential hazards of materials produced during vulcanization.
