||Experimental studies have demonstrated that TDI and TDA (a hydrolysis product of TDI) are carcinogens. The test results meet both OSHA and NIOSH criteria for classifying a substance as a potential occupational carcinogen. NIOSH therefore recommends that all isomers of TDI and TDA be considered as potential carcinogens and that exposures be limited to the lowest feasible concentrations.
