2-component Paint Health Effects

Q. I was woundering if there is any informations on the long term effects of spraying 2-component paint over a period of 25 years? When I started out there was no info on these products as no one had been using them.

A. There is a whole host of information on the health effects of 2-component coatings, such as polyurethanes. Much of it is technical and written for toxicologists. You would need to go to a library and ask the librarian to search for these articles.

You can also go to the Bayer Material Science web site and search their literature on polyurethanes.

Here is one link:
