||After a review of the various isocyanates encountered at work (MDI, TDI and HDI) and their effects on health (asthma, sensitization, irritation of the eyes and throat, bronchitis, bronchospasms and pulmonary oedema), this information note presents five methods for monitoring isocyanates at the place of work. The preferred method is a function of the isocyanate to be measured and the process in which it is used. The exposure limits set by the INSHT are 0.036mg/m3 (0.005ppm) for TDI, 0.052mg/m3 (0.005ppm) for MDI and 0.035mg/m3 (0.005ppm) for HDI.
