Issue of Concern:

There is a risk from inhalation of TDI emissions mainly during the manufacturing process. The severity of this chemical is critical because the DNEL (Derived No Effect Level) is quite low, but due to personal protective equipment the probability of exposure is unlikely. This has been assessed as a medium risk.
