Filter Type

  • "N" means Dusts and Non-Oil Based Mists

TLV(t) PEL(o)

  • An "o" next to exposure limit indicates it is an OSHA PEL.
  • A "t" indicates it is an ACGIH TLV.
  • A"c"indicates that it is a ceiling valuewhich refers to the concentrationthat should not be exceeded at anytime during work exposure.
  • An"s" appears next to a limit this indicates that it is a short termexposure limit (STEL
  • A "skin" designation indicates that the substance can be absorbed throughthe skin, eyes or mucous membranes and appropriate measures must betaken to avoid absorption.
  • A "SEN" indicates TLV-confirmed potential for worker sensitization as a resultof dermal contact and/or inhalation exposure based on the weightof scientific evidence.
Comments list any additional points that should be noted.
ACGIH designates carcinogens as follows:
  • TLV-A1 (t-A1): Confirmed Human Carcinogen
  • TLV-A2 (t-A2): Suspected Human Carcinogen
  • TLV-A3 (t-A3): Confirmed Animal Carcinogen with Unknown Relevance to Humans
  • TLV-A4 (t-A4): Not Classifiable as a Human Carcinogen
  • TLV-A5 (t-A5): Not Suspected as a Human Carcinogen
