long worker exposures
Posted by LeeG on Dec 30, 2006
Is one of the things a home builder can do with a closed in garage working through the winter. Frequent air exchanges in a garage brings in cold air and sends out the warm.
With a cold concrete slab and leaky garage door it'll take lots of poly sheeting to keep the warm air in the garage.
After building a few kayaks through the winter in a closed up garage it becomes obvious that eyes become a pathway for irritation to vapors. I'm pretty sure that exposure exceeds what would be 'normal' in a professional fabrication process meeting some basic safety guidelines.
"tenting" really isn't an optimum solution when you need 60+ degrees to apply epoxy and any increase above the application temperature introduces out-gassing.
