Thermal decomposition products of some perfluorinated polymers are toxic to experimental animals in small-scale combustion toxicity tests; the toxicity is dependent upon the heating procedure, combustion temperature, and other experimental conditions. In the current studies we investigated the time course of fume generation and exposure on pulmonary effects in rats following a 30-min exposure to perfluoropolymer decomposition products (i.e., fume concentration = 0.2 mg/m3 of tetrafluoroethylene… CONTINUE READING
