Epoxy resins are a diverse class of chemicals that differ in structure, physical properties and, presumably, biological activity. The purpose of these experiments was to compare the chronic dermal toxicity and carcinogenicity of selected commercial epoxy resins and to determine the potential for positive synergistic carcinogenic interactions between different resins. This work is an extension and continuation of a Department of Energy (DOE) sponsored program to evaluate epoxy resins for potential occupational health risks.
