Phillips. L. W.
NIOSH 1976 Nov:23 pages
The current chemical agents used in paint and chemical coating that are considered to be toxic or carcinogenic are reviewed. The toxic or carcinogenic agents in various paint and chemical coating compositions are listed. Metal primer, decorative and building paint, and industrial and marine paint compositions are discussed. The types of solvents and chemicals found in paints are discussed. The authors conclude that two areas of major concern related to employee exposure to toxic and carcinogenic agents in paints and chemical coatings are the large amount and varied types of solvents used and the metallic compounds present.
