I knew that some comment like this would show up eventually in this thread. I also know full well that this post is likely a total waste of my time as most of you will completely ignore it. I hope at least one person pays attention and thus takes the proper precautions.

I am tempted to say that using a mask as protection from hardener is a good way to die, except it is actually a fairly bad way to die. Rather than adding any more of my alarmist ramblings, I will let two survivors put it in their own words.

First, the effects of many years of repeated low exposures.

Here is one post with a warning:

Thanks for the warning on the hardener, I figured there was a reason people were not using it. That stuff sounds pretty nasty.

And three more posts that show why it is a good idea to pay attention to his warning:

If the story on low level exposure isn't enough to get your attention, here is an example of a single higher level exposure. Be sure to read all the posts in the thread that were made by JGtools:

Holy smokes! :shock: I had no idea! :oops:
I assure you that you have not wasted time posting. :thanx: I'm glad I asked. Now I know. I used hardener with only charcoal mask didn't change charcoals much if at all, with nitrile gloves, but no suit previously - not happening again!!! I hope I haven't set my self up for major problems down the road already.
