A warning about MEK.
While I worked at Airstream I had to experiences that I want to share.
One of the employees that worked in the fiberglass department was working one day and his co-workers complained that he smelled really bad. After an investigation it was found that gangrene had developed between his figures. Yes, the culprit was MEK.
On the final line one of the employees was having an allergic reaction to chemicals being used to finish the trailer. A sample of each chenical used was sent with the employee to the doctor. The doctor pin-pricked his back with each of the chemicals. The next day the employee red, four inch swelling, raised a quarter of an inch on his back. Yes it was MEK.
This is just information to be very careful around MEK.
