||Industries drive out glycol ethers
||Des industriels chassent les Úthers de glycol [in French]|
||Oct. 1998, No.577, p.14-28. Illus.
||Glycol ethers are widely used in industry and are present in numerous degreasing agents, cooling fluids, paints and adhesives. In light of the carcinogenic and mutagenic risks and of the reproductive toxicity of certain glycol ethers, the preferred approach to reduce worker exposure is to avoid their use and adopt substitute materials. The collection of articles describes the practical experiences of two manufacturers, one of electrical equipment, the other of integrated circuits, in switching to product formulations free of glycol ethers.
