Specific Substances: Triallyl isocyanurate
Nomination Date: 07/00/1998
Rationale: Triallyl isocyanurate, a commonly used crosslinking agent, was nominated for evaluation by NIEHS due to its moderate volatility, which enhances the potential for exposure and the lack of toxicity data. The principal concern with regard to human exposure is the potential release of allyl alcohol during the formulations of some rubber compounds, since conditions conducive to ester decomposition may exist during this time.
