"1K" is any product that doesn't use a hardener. If it uses a hardener then it is a "2K". Yes 1K is "safer", but not by much. And 1K isn't nearly as good, so it won't last as long, be as durable.

So are "Isocyanates" in all 2K paints ??? What about that Duplicolor paint system that you hear about on TV. I was going to paint my car, but I read that if you use "Urethane" you need a fresh air supplied full face mask. I only have a half mask with charcoal filters

Any paint system will have it's hazards. You simply need to deal with them. To buy a paint to apply to a vehicle based on the safety requirements makes no sense, as you will be wasting a lot of money, for an inferior job.

The Duplicolor paint is "Old technology" that won't last. Normally, when it comes to cheap paint, people say it is suitable for yard furniture. That is a case where I would argue that, as I don't feel it would even be good for that, as it won't last there either.

There are many threads here covering the safety issues with painting and how to protect yourself. Do a search, and also check for a "WIKI" on that subject and do some reading. There are more issues that just what respirator you should wear.

Some 2K paints, like epoxy primers, don't have iso's.
If you wear a good respirator with fresh cartridges it
won't be a problem.
If you used a fresh air system, even better.
Of course you should wear one anyway,
even if the paint doesn't have iso's. So it's a moot point.
