||Di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) is mainly used as a plasticizer in the polyvinyl chloride industry. This article reviews the findings of various studies on the exposure to DEHP, together with the results of the analysis of personal and environmental air samples collected during visits to twelve French plastics processing enterprises. In general, exposures to DEHP were found to be low. Because certain forms of processing generate DEHP-rich dusts or fumes, it is advisable to equip these installations with local exhaust ventilation or more simply to accelerate the switch less-toxic phthalates or other classes of plasticizers which is already well underway in areas such as textile fabric coating.
