Survey and Health Assessment of Possible Health Hazardous Compounds in Proofing Sprays


It has been observed that in Denmark and other EU member states spray products for proofing of textiles in certain cases result in serious poisoning symptoms. In the project literature retrieval and information search on the cases has been preformed. Investigation of chemical composition of substances and liberation of small aerosols during use have been analysed on some textile proofing products. Likewise, health assessments of some of the substances and products have been done. It has not been possible to identify which substances caused the poisoning symptoms.
