solvent vapor that is flammable and generally the other components are less
dangerous and non-explosive.

19.1 Natural Ventilation through opened man ways. As in general force ventilation
would use especially in small enclosures and always during spray painting.

19.2 Ventilation is necessary because nearly all solvents vapor are heavier than air.

alkaline catalyst use in many epoxy paints can cause severe chemical burns if
not washed off immediately with water. Do not use thinner and cleaners for
washing up.
