    Default Forgot to put respirator on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Should I be concerned? I just coated half a bedroom floor with Monothane 45 Gloss before I realised that I didn't have my mask on! What do you think...?

    You generally need prolonged exposure to do real damage, your limited exposure should not be a problem to your short term health and is not a risk to long term health. What you did is dumb especially as it is worrying you so don't do it again.

    God grant me the serenity, etc., etc..
    is concern going to affect the outcome?
    Have a few coldies and forget about it....

    A Bundy with Ice is good, 2 is better, 3 is great. Keep going and you will forget why you started.

    Good luck.

    In reality, as has been said before your exposure really has been minimal. There are plenty of blokes out there that use similar products without respirators everyday, and have done so for years, probably while smoking. I'm sure you'll be right.
    It does make me wonder about why the public are happy to use these products though?

    You did WHAT, OMG better rush to the nearest hospital tell them what you have done you may only have minutes to live.

    What you have breathed in is nothing to what you WILL be breathing in while the product off gasses for the next 12 months or more.

    With all the fantastic water based products available out there Im not sure why anyone would see the need to use these old style coatings nowadays.

    LOL. Thanks everyone! And Metrix this product was sold to me by the guy who did my initial sand - before I had any idea what it was. I'm on a pension - he sold it to me 'cheap', and he does not live locally, so I couldn't exactly return it. Probably won't be moving into the house for 12 months anyway, so nerrrr.
