NRMRL Research Plan: PCBs in Caulk 5 1. BACKGROUND In recent years, EPA has learned that caulk containing potentially harmful polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) was used in many buildings, including schools, in the s through the s. In response to concerns about the public health impacts of PCBs in buildings, EPA announced on. PCB caulk is defined as a PCB bulk product waste, and its disposal is subject to U.S. EPA regulations under the Toxic Substances Control Act (40 CFR). This protocol has been developed in consultation with the New York State Department of Health, Division of Environmental Health Assessment, Bureau of Toxic Substance Assessment to addressFile Size: KB. table of contents list of acronyms v introduction 1 environmental management in small laboratories 4 environmental management systems 4 pollution prevention and waste minimization 6 environmental training 7 information management and recordkeeping 9 key environmental management issues 11 air emissions 11 water discharges 21 . 2. Conduct a waste stream assessment: Evaluate each waste stream from every laboratory and process to generate ideas and options for reducing waste. 3. Conduct a feasibility analysis: This will help prioritize the order in which waste minimization options are selected and carried out.

In selection of caulking material, consideration should be given to compatibility with substrates, to ambient conditions at application and during cure, and to the skill level of the applicator. Where and when caulk seals are used, they should not be assumed to remain functional indefinitely. Keywords: caulk, sealant, water management, flashing.

Lefkowitz, D, , Indoor air quality may also be affected by PCBs from caulk to a limited extent. PCBs can slowly vaporize from caulk and be inhaled, and caulk dust particles can come into contact with.
