Paint Products Fact Sheet. To assess the risks for the consumer. Updated version for ConsExpo 4

Factsheet verfproducten. Ten behoeve van de schatting van de risico's voor de consument. Geupdate versie voor ConsExpo 4

Synopsis

Exposure to compounds in consumer products is assessed using the computer program ConsExpo (Consumer Exposure). Given the huge number of consumer products, it is not possible to calculate the exposure for each separate product, so a limited number of groups containing similar products are defined. The information for each group of products is described in a fact sheet. Pest control products, cosmetics and cleaning products are examples fact sheets, which have been published already. This fact sheet covers the use of paint products by consumers. In the fact sheet, 7 product categories are described, including brushing / rolling of several types of paint products and spraying paints with an aerosol spray can and pneumatic using a compressor. To assess exposure to compounds in paint products, default values for all 7 product categories have been determined.
