Original title Prevención del riesgo higiénico en las cabinas de pintura de automóviles, desde el proyecto inicial [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information Oct.-Dec. 1984, No.90, p.8-14. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract Health hazards in automobile paint shops were evaluated by measuring the TWA concentration of lead, chromium salts, total dust, n-butyl acetate, isobutyl acetate, ethylbenzene and xylene in the air of 4 paint shops (priming; using non-metallic paint; using metallic paint; body repair). Relatively high exposure rates were found in the shop using metallic paint for lead and total dust. To resolve this problem, an exhaust hood was designed, and its dimensions and other parameters are given.
