Is anyone aware of any epidemilogical studies relating to exposure to
heatset lithographic ink vapors? I cannot find anything in NIOSH or
EPA data bases. I am interested in chronic effects of daily 8-hr
exposure to concentrations of 4 - 20 mg/m3. The vapors are C12-C28
long chain hydrocarbons, the majority (34%) of which is octacosane.
Any opinions or leads whould be greatly appreciated.
