MAS with slow hardener....no reaction after 7 boats.
but, for whatever its worth, i have always been pretty careful to use gloves, a high quality mask with organic vapor filters and a vacuum attached to the sander whenever sanding.
also keep a good supply of white vinegar and immediately clean up if i get skin contact. i also have work clothes that i use and leave in the garage/wash seperately so as not to soil my clothes or bring debris into the house.
i think you will find that most people without problems are pretty thoughtful in their handling...my understanding is that once a sensitivity develops..you get quite sensitive and it then becomes hard to avoid.
