||Exposure to MDI during the process of insulating buildings with sprayed polyurethane foam
||Aug. 1999, Vol.43, No.6, p.415-419. 12 ref.
||Buildings are often insulated with sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam even though few data are available concerning exposure levels to isocyanates during the spraying process. New data are given on personal exposure to methylene-bis (4-phenylisocyanate) (MDI) during the insulation of dwellings and office buildings with sprayed polyurethane foam. Personal samples were taken for the sprayer and helper during outdoor and indoor applications. Levels of exposure were significant, especially for the sprayer, with values of up to 0.077mg/m3 and 0.400mg/m3 during outdoor and indoor applications, respectively.
