Hold on there. Before you do IMRON know the risks.
IMRON must be sprayed with a full respirator. Not what you use in your
shop. Its a respirator with a pump, and carbon filter, a hose long
enough to keep the pump outside the contamination area. My setup cost me
over 800 about 20 years ago.
IMRON on the other hand is one of the most durable paints. BUT WITHOUT A
RESPIRATOR you will DIE. Your liver will be shot in a single
application. The stuff never leaves it, and it builds up after each use.
It doesn't take much to completely kill you.
There is no reason to spend that kind of money, if you are handy.
I had a very small blower, or a hair dryer without the heat turned on will
Go to your big box store and get 80 feet or so of 1 1/4 inch plastic bilge
hose, or something like that.
Take a respirator mask, and duct tape off one of the places the filters
attach, and tape a 1" PVC elbow on the other place the cartridge is supposed
to go. Attach the hose between the blower and the elbow, and put the blower
out in fresh air, and you are good to go. Cover your skin with a tyvec suit
and hood, and hopefully the respirator was a full face unit, then go at it.
Total cost if you already had the respirator is around 50 bucks. All it
has to do is blow more air than you can breath in, which isn't hard to do.
