Environmental air measurements in the workplace, medical questionnaire and interviews, pulmonary function testing, and skin patch tests conducted in a can company show that isopropylidenediphenol-epichlorohydrin and benzophenonone- tetracarboxylic-dianhydride used in epoxy powder spraying operations are not toxic in the concentrations measured during normal operations, but some evidence is found for the occurrence of toxic exposures during filling, changing powder boxes, or maintenance of powder cabinets.
