Back in my Army days we used some nasty stuff. I can only imagine what it's like today.
Not sure I entirely agree with this, but I am not an expert. Maybe it was the pigments that made it the toughest paint I have ever removed. My trailer required repeated applications of paint remover and finally sand blasting. I have restored several autos and have not experienced anything quite like it.DanZ51 said:Well yes, but technically it's polyurethane - like alot of paints. The only thing that makes it special is the pigment count is off-the-chart compared to most (civvy) type polyurethane paints.
This is ultimately the point we are trying to make. We have a paint and coatings expect on the board. Maybe he will catch this and post. I have a metallurgist coworker who specializes in coatings. I have him look into it and will post up if he believes if any of the sources I posted overstate any hazards.DanZ51 said:Like any paint, don't sand it without a respirator/dust mask, don't spray it without the CORRECT respirator.
