Abstract Topics covered include organic solvents, resin monomers and related compounds, pigments and occupational exposures in paint manufacture and painting. Monographs on individual chemicals or complex mixtures contain data on chemical and physical properties and on production, use, occurrence and analysis. Sections covering biological data relevant to the evaluation of carcinogenic risk to humans contain reports of animal studies and human epidemiological studies where available. The monograph on occupational exposure in the painting trades covers a description of paint products, a history of their manufacture, applications in various industries, and current production processes. Studies of workplace exposures are reviewed and biological data on the human carcinogenic risk are presented. Appendices provide a summary table and activity profiles of genetic and related effects.
