Aye , when I first used it I wasn't aware of how dangerous it was until I heard from a friend who refinishes guitars. He had a really bad episode where he awoke in hospital not knowing why he was there...he'd passed out while spraying 2k. It caused him a lot of problems and most of them are now terminal.Okay so I've done some reading about isocyanates. If you can smell them you're over exposed... According to 3M my filters will filter them out, the only problem is isocyanates do not give off an odor at lower exposure levels... So there is no way for you to tell when it's time to change the filters... And if you can smell it, it's too late. So thankfully these were brand new filters when I started. Although I have sprayed 6 coats of primer... 3 coats of base coat, 3 of the chroma coat, and 5 clear coats. That's quite a bit of painting... So I am going to order new filters before I continue any more. And absolutely wear clothes that completely covers me... Goggles... A hat. At least I am outside. Christ I knew this stuff was dangerous but it definitely has me concerned. And now my brain is going to make me feel like I have symptoms of some issue even though I don't... Cuz that's my brain 😑. Thanks for the heads up Zoot.
Update: just bought a 3m 6800 series full face respirator... And a tripple pack of cartridges.
H e warned me of how it can quickly enter your body through the eyes and skin.
I now where a full body suite and tape it over my gloves and leave no part of my body exposed. I also use the 3m mask but throw it away and use a new one when starting separate work.
Not trying to lecture, I'd just hate someone to ruin their future health or even worse.
