||The objective of this study was to gain information about skin sensitizers in metalworking fluids (MWFs), and to compare it with the information provided in safety data sheets (SDSs). A total of 17 samples of MWFs concentrates were analyzed for skin sensitizers known or suspected to be used in MWFs. Of the MWFs, 15 contained 6-39% of alkanolamines, mostly monoethanolamine and triethanolamine. Formaldehyde was detected in all MWFs, at concentrations ranging between 0.002% and 1.3%. Benzisothiazolinone and octylisothiazolinone were detected in one fluid each. Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate was detected in nine MWFs, the highest concentration being 0.09%. Resin acids of colophonium were detected in seven MWFs in concentrations ranging from 0.41% to 3.8%. On the whole, the allergens analyzed were poorly declared in the SDSs. Implications of these findings are discussed.
