Personal air samples were analyzed for naphtha (8030306), xylene (1330207), cellosolve (110805), acetate (71501), diacetone-alcohol (123422), methyl-ethyl-ketone (78933), methyl-isobutyl-ketone (108101), acetone (67641), and toluene-2,4-diisocyanate (584849) at the Hillerich and Bradsby Company (SIC-2752) in Jeffersonville, Indiana on June 16, 1981. A representative of the United Steel Workers of America, Local 3931, requested the evaluation on behalf of approximately four workers. All naphtha, xylene, cellosolve- acetate, diacetone-alcohol, methyl-ethyl-ketone, methyl-isobutyl- ketone, acetone, and toluene-2,4-diisocyanate concentrations were below their respective OSHA standards of 2950, 434, 540, 240, 590, 410, 2400, and 0.14 milligrams per cubic meter of air.
