This page provides a description and a link to a "Wall Paint Exposure Model (WPEM)" modeling tool that can be used for modeling exposure levels or information needed in exposure assessment.

Short description

WPEM estimates the potential exposure of consumers and workers to the chemicals emitted from wall paint which is applied using a roller or a brush. WPEM is a software product that uses mathematical models developed from small chamber data to estimate the emissions of chemicals from oil-based (alkyd) and latex wall paint. This is then combined with detailed use, workload and occupancy data (e.g., amount of time spent in the painted room, etc,) to estimate exposure.



Key words
