Trimethylol propane triacrylate (TMPTA) is a multifunctional acrylate commonly used in ultraviolet (UV) curing inks. Six men developed dermatitis when working with such UV curing inks in printing plants and all had positive patch test to TMPTA. The sensitizing capacity of TMPTA as determined by the "Guinea pig maximization test" (GMP) showed it to be a strong allergen. Cross-reaction with penta-erythritol triacrylate (PETA) occurs, but not with trimethylol propane trimethacrylate (TMPTMA). 
Contact allergy to trimethylolpropane triacrylate (TMPTA) in an aziridine plastic hardener
TLDR
4 workers developed hand and face dermatitis when exposed to a floor top coal that contained a polyurethane arid a polyfunctional aziridine hardener and additives and TMPTA, and are known sensitizers in UV‐hardening acrylates. Expand
Contact allergy to aziridine paint hardener.
A painter experienced an extensive dermatitis when exposed to a paint primer (undercoating) used to protect wood siding. The primer was an acrylic emulsion with a polyfunctional aziridine added as aExpand
The sensitizing capacity of multifunctional acrylates in the guinea pig
TLDR
The sensitizing capacity of various multifunctional acrylates and their cross‐reactivity pattern have been investigated with the guinea pig maximization test and show that BUDA and HDDA are moderate to strong sensitizers and that they probably cross‐react with each other. Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis from acrylates in ultraviolet curing inks
Six patients developed dermatitis while working with ultraviolet curing inks in four different printing plants. Contact allergy was found to the multifunctional acrylate monomers pentaerythritolExpand
Allergic contact dermatitis due to urethane acrylate in ultraviolet cured inks.
TLDR
Seven workers exposed to ultraviolet printing inks developed contact dermatitis, six cases were allergic and one irritant, and trimethylpropane triacrylate was thought to be the most likely irritating agent. Expand
Airborne occupational allergic contact dermatitis due to trimethylolpropane triacrylate (TMPTA) used in the manufacture of printed circuit boards
TLDR
A 51-year-old nonatopic woman laminated photosensitive resists onto glass-fiber-reinforced copper-coated epoxy resin plates in the manufacture of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and had conjunctivitis, itching and redness, especially of the lower lids. Expand
Review of the toxicity of multifunctional acrylates.
TLDR
Data are presented that suggest that MFAs are not appreciable fetotoxic or teratogenic hazards and do not elicit a strong carcinogenic response following chronic dermal exposure. Expand
Residual monomer in acrylic polymers.
TLDR
While the kinetics of loss for short times appeared to conform to diffusion theory, subsequent loss did not; this was attributable to both continued polymerization of the monomer and to the concentration dependence of the diffusion coefficient. Expand
The sensitizing potential of di‐(meth) acrylates based on bisphenol A or epoxy resin in the guinea pig
TLDR
The sensitizing capacity of the different acrylates based on bisphenol A or epoxy resin have been investigated with the guinea pig maximization test and the pattern of simultaneous reactivity of the compounds was also studied. Expand
Final Report of the Safety Assessment of Methacrylate Ester Monomers Used in Nail Enhancement Products1
  • 2005
Methacrylate ester monomers are used in as artificial nail builders in nail enhancement products. They undergo rapid polymerization to form a hard material on the nail that is then shaped. WhileExpand
