A medical evaluation of dermatitis related to the manufacture of ultraviolet cured ink (SIC-2893) determined that the dermatitis experience by the working foremen, weighers and millhands may be attributed to three polyfunctional acrylic monomers, epoxy acrylate oligomers, and two separate compounds of varying purity of mixed esters of amyl-p-dimethylaminobenzoate. In-vivo studies revealed that the acrylic monomers and oligomers were allergic contact sensitizers; in-vivo and in-vitro investigations demonstrated that the mixed esters of amyl-p-dimethylaminobenzoate were phototoxic. Recommendations are made for improving work practices and medical monitoring to improve control of dermatitis.
