A health hazard evaluation determination performed at the Hardy Division of the Sheller Globe Corporation (SIC-3079) revealed that employees working with or near the polyvinyl-chloride (9002862) injection molding process are not exposed to detectable levels of vinyl-chloride (75014) vapors. The determination was based on direct measurements and collected air samples taken during both normal and purging operations of an injecting molding machine. Hydrogen-chloride (7647010), a thermal decomposition product of polyvinyl-chloride, was also not detected during the injection molding operation.
