||This article presents the results of a study conducted by INRS at the request of several companies wishing to assess and characterize occupational exposure to epoxy resins. Atmospheric and surface samples of resin monomers (DGEBA and/or DGEBF), amines, acid anhydrides and glycidylic ethers were collected at the workplaces. The airborne resin monomer concentrations were generally very low or undetectable, even when hot resins were used. The detected exposures were due to hardening agents in air or skin contact with resin monomers. The schedule of occupational diseases in France now allows consideration of hardeners and recognition of allergic respiratory diseases contracted when preparing and using epoxy resins.
