    Default How Toxic is Urethane?

    so i decided to radious some wheels because i want to.

    NEwho... aftering reading threads they all say to wipe that nar off and take a shower and blahblahblah TOXIC.

    my question is: im radiousing the wheels with a powerdrill and sandpaper and it makes urethane dust. should i have a resperator on or something? or if i hold it far away from my face and not breathe in for the time im spinning it will i be fine?

    also, i washed my arms and hands off with soap and water afterwards. any other precautions i should take?

    if i feed my brother some of the dust will he die?

    is it like "oh frick go to the ER, you're gonna keel over and die" toxic? or more like "this'll give you tumors" toxic?

    it's the tumor kind of dangerous.
    and urethane dust can't be expelled by your lungs so think of it that way.

    wear a respirator and wash up. i use a lot of thane foams and rubbers during the year (along with other nasty crap) and I try to wash my skin often, and take off/wash my clothes before I get to my bedroom to avoid any contamination. then i shower. but this is after 18-22 hour days of constant exposure to dusts, vapors, and 2-part materials.
