Abstract In an effort to gather information on the potential occupational exposures to acrylates or methacrylates, a walk through survey was conducted at the Industrial Heating and Finishing Facility (SIC-3479, SIC-2851) in Pelham, Alabama. At this facility, finishing systems were processed for wood, plastic, glass and metal substrates. Acrylic coatings have been used there since 1982. Coatings were blended at this site with catalysts, solvents and photoinitiators to prepare the needed sprays. At the site, the company used a spray booth and an ultraviolet curing unit connected by a conveyor system to demonstrate spray coat applications on three dimensional objects to potential clients. During these demonstrations the spraying was done by hand. However, during normal operations, an automated spraying system was incorporated. The spraying was done in a separate room which was equipped with a ventilation system. The facility did not have an industrial hygiene program, but material safety data sheets were posted in areas where the materials were used. There have been no health problems reported at this location.
