Título Current Intelligence Bulletin No.53 - Toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and toluenediamine (TDA): Evidence of carcinogenicity
Información bibliográfica U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Division of Standards Development and Technology Transfer, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati OH 45226, USA, 1989. 20p.

Resumen Experimental studies have demonstrated that TDI and TDA (a hydrolysis product of TDI) are carcinogens. The test results meet both OSHA and NIOSH criteria for classifying a substance as a potential occupational carcinogen. NIOSH therefore recommends that all isomers of TDI and TDA be considered as potential carcinogens and that exposures be limited to the lowest feasible concentrations.
