Thoroughly read and understand all product instructions.  Failure to do so may result in personal injury or your airplane could be deemed unairworthy by the FAA.

 

When using the Superflite chemicals:

Wear protective clothing.  Failure to wear protective clothing may result in skin irritation, burns or rashes, as well as damage to the clothing.

Wear protective gloves.  Failure to wear protective gloves may result in skin irritation, burns, or rashes.  Always wash your hands thoroughly before touching other areas of the body, other people, or areas of the coating that may be sensitive to foreign substances.

Wear eye protection.  Failure to wear eye protection may result in serious injury or blindness.  Always have eye wash available.

Wear a dust mask.  Inhaling fine dust, airborne particles, and chemical vapors may result in respiratory problems.

With some of the Superflite chemicals (the epoxy primer, epoxy varnish, fabric primer, and topcoat) it is necessary to wear a fresh air breathing system.  Failure to do so when spraying the mentioned substances may result in injury to the eyes and/or respiratory system.

 

Note:  You must use a ventilated spray booth for spraying all primers and paints containing isocyanates.

 

Protective Gear

One of the most important questions to address before recovering the airplane is: what protective clothing and gear do you need?  During the process of recovering your plane, you will be using potentially dangerous chemicals.  The correct protective apparel is essential for minimizing health risks and for creating a safe work environment.  Consider using the following protective items during the recovering process:  respirator system, invisible or latex gloves, safety goggles, and Tyvek suits.
