I think Keith is having an issue with images. Anything that is listed as an attachment is loading really small. He is supposed to be fixing those issues today. That might be why there is an issue with the pic in your sig MagnetMan. Go to edit sig and check the bottom of the page for permissions. As far as I know, only vendors have the ability to use images in sigs. That might be messed up right now.

As for the Breather mask, good call. It can be pretty strong, even in a well ventilated area. We had the garage door open and you could really smell it. I would also suggest leaving the garage door open, or the Jeep outside as it cures. My downstairs smelt like paint for 2 days because the door was closed at night.

Where I work, safety is always an issue. While not really called for in this application, why not take proper precautions with ventilation and filtration...

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

Have you lined yet? I found the Liner to be stronger than the MEK. Then again, the MEK and the Liner might irritate differently. The MEK didn't bother me much, and I found it to work well on hands so I used that to clean mine.

Noo haven't lined yet :/ I just rustproofed the rust spots with the chassis saver. You are right though, MEK can definitely clean well. I got chassis saver on the laundry room tub and it seemed it was permanently on there until I tried rubbing it out with MEK and sure enough it came off. I noticed it turns my finger tips dry and white (until you wash with soap) I'm pretty sure that MEK probably has some carcinogens in it, it's probably something you shouldn't wash your hands with all the time lol. Anyways, I'm hoping to get the liner on soon, I'm extremely anxious but just don't have the time yet!

lol, sounds good. I definitely would clean my hands with it all the time since it does turn hands white and chalky. We used it to clean out our spray gun when we ran oil based paint through it (purposely). The mek cleaned out the gun, and it looked like new.

MEK smells gooooood. Adn I cna't fnid nay evodnece onlien taht ti cuases drain bramage

Sorry, that was a symptom of overexposure. Flammability is #1 caution followed by breathing too much in a confined space but mainly for long periods of time. If you are working with decent ventilation it should be minimal risk. No determination on MEK causing cancer and it does not accumulate in the body.

Just don't work with it in a closed up garage with open flame!

lol

I'm probably the living proof that it DOES cause brain damage ( so the lil lady says i have brain damage anyhow..lol)

I've been around and used it ALOT in Structural Fabrication shops,it's regularly used on steel before it is painted with primer and coatings to rid the grease and oils.

Anytime we've used it,it had to be either outside or in a paint booth with ventilation systems,and wearing respirators or HUGE fines were placed to the owners from OSHA...so there IS some kind of serious danger to the health.I would think that stuff would do some serious damage to lungs and throat with the way it eats away at chemicals and coatings.

I've had work gloves that practictly fell apart a few days after some of the MEK had gotten onto them,probably from drying them out so much,chemicaly safe rubber gloves work best and respirators(not the dust mask type),i wouldn't personaly want to be the guinea pig if it actualy is dangerous to the health.

Bottom line is..be safe,safety should always be No 1 in a persons life...I've seen too many lil kids and other halves lose their loved ones because the person said"'ahhhh..it won't happen to me!"

Just lil note...lol...still waitin on the Spice color

Wow that is a long sentence. Anyways, the finger on one of the gloves that came with the kit just disappeared on my dad when the MEK hit it. It was kind of funny. I looked over and asked what happened to his finger, and he said the glove just disintegrated.

Agreed upon regarding safety to avoid being sorry.
Overexposure is what needs to be avoided and common sense needs to be observed.
Work fast, breathe little and run fast if you see flames.
AND DON'T SMOKE WHILE WIPING YOUR TUB DOWN!

I was wearing rubber gloves and they starting wrinkling up and became weak after MEK came in contact. I didn't even see my buddy get any on his hands but he must of because the skin on his hands suddenly turned dry as was peeling! He was confused but thought it was kinda funny, I made him wash his hands lol

Look into using "Butyl Rubber Gloves" for safely working with MEK.
These are expensive around $20 a pair but will last a while.
Army's MOPP Level 4 Gloves for those who had the pleasure.


The more common Nitrile gloves won't last long using direct contact with MEK. A lesson from past experience.

I hope you all know that MEK goes straight to your liver through your skin. So please wear the correct gloves.

Please don't post information that is incomplete.
The paragraph below comes from this link: OSH Answers: 2-Health Effects of Methyl Ethyl Ketone

Q: Is there potential for methyl ethyl ketone to build-up or accumulate in my body?

MEK does not accumulate in the body. It is rapidly absorbed by inhalation, skin contact and ingestion and transferred into the blood and other tissues.
MEK is metabolized in the liver, mainly to 3-hydroxy-2-butanone and 2,3-butanediol which are eliminated in urine. Most MEK probably enters the
general metabolism in the body and is converted to acetate which is eventually broken down to carbon dioxide and water which are then
eliminated in exhaled air and urine. Small amounts of MEK itself are also eliminated in exhaled air and urine. MEK and its metabolites are mostly
cleared from the body within 24 hours.
