||Following several requests from automotive component manufacturers, aerospace enterprises and ski manufacturers wishing to evaluate and characterize occupational exposures to epoxy resins, IRNS undertook a sampling campaign between 2005 and 2007. All the substances contained in the products used were identified, after which atmospheric and surface samplings were carried out within the enterprises and analyzed for monomers, amines, acid anhydrides and glycidic esters. It is concluded that inhalation exposures to monomers are very low or non-existent, even under hot processing conditions. The little exposures that do exist concern airborne hardeners or skin contact with monomers.
