Abstract
The major hazard from the manufacture, curing and processing of plastics and resins is contact dermatitis which may be due either to primary irritation or to allergic sensitization. Frequent offenders are the catalysts, low molecular weight polymers, monomers, and uncured condensate components. Accelerators, plastizers, solvents, and other components may also cause dermatitis. Material is presented with regard to harmful effects and potential occupational exposures to alkyd resins, allyl resins, amino resins, diisocyanate resins, epoxy resins, phenolic resins, polyester resins, acrylic resins, cellulosics, fluorocarbons, nylons, polyethylenes, polystyrenes, and vinyl plastics.
