Resumen This report is a review of toxicological and epidemiological literature concerning the effects of oil mists generated from cutting and lubricating oils. Animal experiments have shown that droplet size is as important a determinant of effect as the source and composition of the oil. The epidemiologic data do not support the establishment of a threshold limit value, because they represent such a variety of oils and additives, as well as degradation products and impurities arising during machining of metals. However, the results of the animal experiments suggest 5mg/m3 as a maximum exposure level for pure oils.
