POR-15 how bad health wise?
Was hoping to finally paint my frame this weekend. The prep will be done outside but I was planning to do the painting in the garage because of the pollen. I will be brushing it on, wearing a respirator, and using an exhaust fan. My concern is the garage is attached to the house. Will the fumes enter the house? I never used POR 15 so I don't know how bad this stuff is.
It is does have a strong odor but with ventilation you shouldn't have a problem. What really makes for a health risk with it is if you decide to spray it on then you need the right kind of filter in the respirator. It's nasty if it gets anywhere you don't want it too so be careful with that. I got some on my concrete floor on the shop over 2 years ago and it's still there even though it's a high traffic spot.

Needless to say I looked really funny going to work in a suit and tie for weeks with black paint all over my hands and on my neck where I scratched an itch.

I know that I always catch hell when I paint in my garage. I don't know about your house but yes you can smell it inside. The absolute worst mistake made was applying MEK, Methyl Ethyl Ketone to prep for Hurculiner. I thought I would not live to see another day, my wife was so mad. In all fairness she had every reason to be mad. If I had children I would not even think about it while they were home. So if you can get her out of the house for the day and crack a few windows around the house it won't take long for the air to clear.
