Biocides in spray products - exposure and health

This report presents results from a pilot study, where it was sought to evaluate the existing software models ConsExpo and BEAT, by comparing exposure assessments or spray products performed in the software models to actual measurements performed in a human exposure chamber.

Aerosol size distribution spectra, number concentration and chemical composition were monitored to measure inhalation exposure. In addition, wipe samples were taken from surfaces in the chamber to estimate secondary exposure.

For the secondary exposure, a better agreement between the measurements and modeling were found, which indicates that the models may predict the secondary exposure for this product type.
