Temporary health effects of exposure to experimental paints were studied.
Ten painters feeling nuisance from water-borne paints and eight painters not feeling such nuisance applied eight experimental water-borne paints according to normal work routines.
The effects were a decrease in forced vital capacity, forced expiratory volume in 1 s and peak expiratory flow, an increase in urine excretion, and a decrease in urine density.
A small, but statistically highly significant, increase in the mean volume of erythrocytes was observed.
