Respirator for Homebuilt Booth

I'm new to the painting world, and I'm 19, i have a 2 car garage and want to set up a temporary paint booth so I can paint parts for my latest project.

If I have suffiecent air flow, with box fans up high and down low , could i use one of those 3m full face respirators? Is it safe to not use an air supply? I plan on having lots of airflow. I heard modern auto paint is like 10 times worse than aresneic. Nasty Stuff

Thanks

Brendan

You're correct. Most modern paints such as urethanes and base coat clear coat systems contain ISO's that can kill you if you're not careful. If you intend to use these paints in a closed booth I would suggest a supplied air breathing system such as HobbyAir rather than just a canister type respirator. You just can't be sure the canister type is actually filtering out the dangerous ISO's.

What if you are going to paint in the wide open?

OK, I'm sure I'm going to get flogged for this but what if your make shift paint booth was in the wide open and found a way to control your dust bunnies and such. Would the ISO be as bad.?

You know what, I did and they were beating the wrong horse. Got no answers. Maybe you got better search criteria, but thanks anyway.

I'm not too tired of this subject yet. "isos" are harmful to everyone, even in low concentrations, cannot be smelled at low concentrations, and for some people they can cause debilitating illness without warning from even minor exposure. Some people get along fine with just a normal charcoal respirator, some people can be sensitized by exposure and develop a reaction similar to an extreme life threatening allergy. That's why we tend to err on the side of caution and recommend supplied air systems. At the very least, you need a fresh charcoal respirator that is rated for paint spraying operations, and a supplied air system is the preferred and recommended equipment. Understand that there is a risk involved and educate yourself accordingly. Good air flow is a plus. Leave the paint area immediately if you feel any strange symptoms like dizziness or shortness of breath.

Disclaimer: I am not an industrial hygienist. My remarks are cautionary in nature and not meant as a tutorial on the subject of isocyanate exposure. Proceed at your own risk!

I personally don't think that anything to do with safety can be "beat to death".
