  • We have experimentally quantified exposure to dichloromethane during non-professional paint stripping and validated the mathematical paint exposure model of van Veen et al. (1999). The model innovates the prediction of the dichloromethane evaporation rate and room concentration by accounting for transport in the paint stripper matrix. The experiments show that peak concentrations range from 600 to 1600 mg/m3, increasing to 2000 mg/m3 when direct sun radiation increases evaporation. A naive… CONTINUE READING
