Breating paint fumes is not good anytime, but when doing any 'two part' mixed paints you need to use a fresh air respirator and cover all exposed skin...

I've never 'bought' the POR-15 story, so have no experience. Is it a two part paint? Or just a plain enamel?

Yep that’s important, I wear a respirator, sound protection muffins and a paint suit, when I worked for the government it was a requirement, just used to protecting myself when I paint...

POR15 is a one part chemical, I hesitate to call it paint. But it is as bad or worse for breathing/contact than a two part urethane.

When my Hobby Air fresh air setup needed an upgrade/repairs a few years back, I bought the "Hobby Air II" version with more output for longer hose, also with a full hood so that my eyes and ears are covered. Not only is it more effective, it's also cooler under the hood.

While a passive charcoal respirator can be effective, the problem is that you don't know when the charcoal has become saturated and ineffective. Another advantage of a fresh air setup is this - if a passive mask/respirator leaks, you get exposed because the fumes get in. If a fresh air setup leaks, it just pushes fresh air out - the fumes don't get in as long as the air pump is running.

Just one more thing about this POR-15. It sprays really well, but where I brushed it on, you cannot tell whether it is sprayed or brushes.
Thanks for all the responds.

Default Respirator

Listen to all the good advice, I'm a good example of what can happen. COPD hits you suddenly and it's irreversible. I'm on a lot of medications for a heart condition as a result and on oxygen 24/7, very limited in what I'm able to do.
I started painting, etc. before it was harmful as were cigarettes. Don't end up like me.

I have never sprayed that stuff. It takes overnite to dry and if you get it on your skin it's going to be there for weeks. I like it, but always brush it on, with gloves and long sleeved shirt.

just a respirator is not enough. Any paint that contains isocyanates require fresh air respirator and a full suit, head cover/goggles etc. Isocyanate will definitely give you cancer, liver, lungs etc. Most modern quality paints contain isocyanates.
