Abstract : This report provides rationale for a Threshold Limit Value (TLV) Superscript R of 700 mg/m cu.m (200 ppm, 1.5% LEL) and a Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL) of 1050 mg/g cu. m (300 ppm. 2.3% LEL) as n-hexane with a skin notation for JP-4/Jet B wide cut aviation turbine fuel. This recommendation is based upon a thorough review of the literature and USAF experience with JP-4 exposures. (Author)
