Title Control of styrene vapour in a large fiberglass boat manufacturing operation
Bibliographic information Dec. 1984, Vol.45, No.12, p.817-825. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract Ventilation of each of the 5 tiltable boat hull mould stations was modified to improve its efficiency. Levels of styrene in air were measured before and after the modifications. Analysis of variance performed on the results indicated that a significant lowering of the styrene levels had been obtained by the implementation of the described control measures.
