Description

LP182312-1   Chlorinated solvents
Chlorinated solvents are a large family of chemical compounds that contain chlorine, for example, carbon tetrachloride (carbon tet), trichloroethylene (TCE), or methylene chloride. They are used for a wide variety of commercial and industrial purposes, including degreasers, cleaning solutions, paint thinners, pesticides, resins, glues, and a host of other mixing and thinning solutions. Their chlorine-containing chemical structure helps them: to efficiently dissolve organic materials like fats and greases and to serve as raw materials or intermediates in the production of other chemicals. Workers can be exposed to chlorinated solvents through the absorption of solvents, through inhalation and skin contact. Inhalation is the most common form of workplace exposure, because the solvents can readily evaporate. Skin contact is another important route of exposure in the workplace. Source: LOINC partner 1
