Study investigated the published literature for selected areas in three classes of plasticizers: epoxies, linear polyesters, and trimellitates. Areas of interest included physical and chemical properties, production and use, health and environmental effects, and plasticizer interchangeability. Current production methods, sites, and annual volumes are presented for each class. Little information is available in the published literature on health effects. No occupational standards exist for any of the three classes. Unpublished health data are available for selected tests from manufacturers for specific materials. Environmental effects were limited to static fish toxicity studies for two trimellitates and studies of fungal and bacterial growth with epoxies and linear polyesters. Both classes of plasticizers are very susceptible to fungal and bacterial attack.
