||Hazards of spraying with two-pack paints containing isocyanates.
||Jan. 1979, Vol.29, No.1, p.22-24.
||The spray from these paints consists partly of isocyanate in liquid form, and partly of particles of the prepolymer, with isocyanate droplets adhering to them. 6 case histories of paint sprayers allergic to isocyanates are given, illustrating the lack of information provided by manufacturers and of precautions taken. Recommendations made included: spraying only in booths or enclosures with effective exhaust ventilation; use of airline breathing apparatus; exclusion of workers with a history of respiratory allergy; mention of the isocyanate ingredient on the label.
