Safety warning spraying bed-liner.

NIOSH is in the process of coming out with a warning letter for people that spray bed-liners.
The reason I bring this up to you is NIOSH called me two months ago to see if I would give my input on the draft. I said we would and just got the letter today. The letter is not for releasing yet but for input from companies making sprayin bed liners. Being a GOV'T agency it will be a year before this letter is out.

Bed liners are very high in solids so the polyisocyanates used are in higher amounts than you will find in a clear coat or a single stage paint.

There has been a death and emergency's from over exposure to the MDI (ISO) so I would urge you if you spray one of these to make sure you are protected and do it outside not in a garage.

VERY important safety tip. Thanx. Keep hearing nothing but evil about Isos. Too bad they can't come up with an alternative chemical to x-link urethanes.

You can imagine all the good old boys shooting these things everday without proper protection! I had a customer buy a system and I thought of him as I was reading your post. He always had a poor fitting charcoal mask on with paint around his nostrils.

A customer and good friend of mine has a spray on bedliner business. I'll pass that info. on He has a spray booth and I think he has a fresh air intake for his mask. But I'll tell him anyway.
Thankx for the info.
