Default Wear a respirator when painting.

Saturday I was cleaning and spraying POR-15 under my 55 truck. I finished around 10 am and by 4 pm I was having extreme breathing problems. I ended up going to the emergency room and spending 6 hours there. I am now on my third day and still not completely normal. The Dr prescribed steroids and a inhaler.
Now I know most of you are not as dumb as I was, but be careful and do not take things for granted. I was wearing a mask, but not a respirator.

Your timing is great. Just did some touch up with acrylic and a Preval sprayer. Made a last min. decision to don the charcoal respirator.

Hope you get well soon Ray.
We want to see you at the nationals this year.

Had an uncle that did paint and body work for a few years. Wore a respirator but eventually still had problems. Long story short, he went to the Dr. and they figured out that he was leaving his ears exposed and that was the problem. Started using ear plugs with the rest of his gear and no more problems.

Glad you are okay Ray....That POR-15 is some nasty stuff....Actually, I don't use it anymore, since I found out about SPI epoxy primer....Always good for us to get these reminders.

This is me when I was doing the underside of mine

I have brushed POR15 on a trailer. I found out you can't get that stuff off. You have to wear it off. I have heard that acrylic enamel is really nasty and can do bad stuff to your lungs. Never heard the thing about the ears.

Ray, hope you are doing better now. I've been spraying for 40+ years and I wouldn't consider spraying anything in my shop and spray booth without gearing up good. Some additives in the professional products can mess you up in a hurry. Glad you passed on the info though, a lot of us take the safety gear for granted.
