Title Ethyl acrylate: Documentation of maximum admissible values for occupational exposure
Original title Akrylan etylu: Dokumentacja proponowanych wartosci dopuszczalnych wielkosci narazenia zawodowego [in Polish]
Bibliographic information 2005, Vol.44, No.2, p.5-28. Illus. 70 ref.
Abstract Ethyl acrylate is a colourless liquid with an acrid odour. Liquid and vapour phases of ethyl acrylate are irritating to the eyes, the skin and mucous membranes. Prolonged inhalation exposure to ethyl acrylate produces drowsiness, headache and nausea. Limited data indicate the potential for ethyl acrylate to produce skin sensitization. Based on animal data for chronic irritation, a value of 20 mg/m3 was established as the maximum exposure limit value for ethyl acrylate. The suggested STEAL value is 40 mg/m3. Notations for skin absorption, irritant and sensitizer are also assigned.
