||Diisocyanate emission from a paint product: A preliminary analysis
||July 2002, Vol.17, No.7, p.491-494. Illus. 14 ref.
||The purpose of this study was to evaluate emission of 2,4-toluene diisocyanate (2,4-TDI), 2,6-toluene diisocyanate (2,6-TDI), and isophorone diisocyanate (IPDI) from a commercially available two-stage concrete coating. A laboratory model of an outdoor deck coating process was developed and isocyanate concentrations determined by reaction with 1-(2-methoxyphenol)- piperazine and subsequent high performance liquid chromatographic analysis with UV detection. The detection limit for 2,4-TDI and 2,6-TDI urea derivatives was 0.6µg TDI/g wet product, and 0.54µg IPDI/g wet product for the IPDI urea derivative. No 2,4-TDI or IPDI was detected in the mixed product. The 2,6-TDI emission rates per gram of wet product applied per hour after one hour, five hours and 15-hours were 0.32µg, 0.38µg and 0.02µg respectively. These emission rates should allow industrial hygienists to calculate exposures to isocyanates emitted from coating products.
