||Irritant dermatitis due to diallyl glycol carbonate monomer

||3rd Quarter 1987, No.31, p.223-226.
||Information note for occupational physicians. The allyl monomers widely used in the optical industry are sometimes not tolerated by the skin and eyes; this is especially true of diallyl glycol carbonate (DAGC). The toxicity of DAGC and isopropyl percarbonate (IPP) is reviewed. Clinical aspects indlude the irritant properties of mixtures of DAGC and IPP, the risk of contact with the substances as a function of work assignment (before and after polymerisation), frequency of intolerance in exposed workers, description of lesions. Human tests with IPP, DAGC and impurities found in DAGC, and tolerance in animals are reviewed. Diagnosis, prevention and compensation are also discussed.
