ABOUT AUTO PAINT - VENTILATION AND RESPIRATORS
WHAT DO YOU NEED IN THE WAY OF VENTILATION?

Nearly all the materials used in automotive re-finishing are hazardous to your health, the paint especially so. The catalysts usually contain Di-isocyanate Prepolymer, and it's the that is the main concern. It attacks the central nervous system, and can cause permanent injury.
A good air flow, and a fresh air mask should be used. If you don't have any bronchial problems, then an activated charcoal mask can be used. I have used the charcoal mask for years, but now my lungs seem to have an asthmatic reaction to the fumes and I strictly use the fresh air system. Also, some paints contain lead, which may have negative effects on your health when painting or sanding.
