||Laboratory tests were carried out on five thermoplastic resins with cadmium pigment loadings in the range 1.43-1.82%. Air samples were collected during the moulding of each material. Thermal processing of these plastic resins formulated with medium to high levels of cadmium pigments did not generate workplace cadmium concentrations above the level of 2.5Á/m3. The inorganic pigments did not volatilize at the temperatures recommended for processing these resins. Processors should be aware of other potential sources of cadmium in the workplace.
