I'm a paint dummy but I'm trying to learn. Is it possible to get something mixed that does not require hardener?

Just curious.
Why don't you want hardener?

I do want the hardener, I think someone else didn't want hardener but that doesn't make much sense? There must be a reason though.

No problem, I would like to hear what he was to say regarding that.

probably for health reasons as the hardener is dangerous to use unless proper PPE is used with it.

I've used it to paint several tractors over the last 5 years and have had no problems aside mild asthma "flare-up" when used outside and wearing a charcoal paint respirator.

I can't find the post, but for years George Willer used hardener, most of the time with a face mask as I recall. Then one day he had breathing problems, and Dr. told him his painting days were over, anymore paint fumes of any kind could be fatal. Dr, said it was from all the years of painting.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

A charcoal respirator will protect you for about 15 minutes worth of exposure to the odorless hardener. It will work longer for the solvents, so the bad news is one will be exposed to hardener long before you think it is time to change the cartridge based upon odor. The other bad news. Exposure to hardener is cumulative damage. The more you are exposed, the more damage is done. It never gets "better".

You can buy a remote breathing apparatus for a few hundred bucks with a pump, 50 feet of hose and a hood that dumps fresh air over your face. A lot cheaper than COPD. Chem-resistant gloves are a must too. Same damage from skin contact.

A set of charcoal canisters will protect you for about the time it takes to mix the paint. Use them for that, load the paint gun and toss them when you are cleaning up.

Lots of info on this on the web. Lots of horror stories too, of ruined lives.

Here is a post I made last September on use of hardener. As I said then, I'm probably wasting my time posting this. Doesn't look like anyone payed attention then, why shoud I expect it now. If nothing else, read the posts from JGtools in the last linked thread.

I knew that some comment like this would show up eventually in this thread. I also know full well that this post is likely a total waste of my time as most of you will completely ignore it. I hope at least one person pays attention and thus takes the proper precautions.

I am tempted to say that using a mask as protection from hardener is a good way to die, except it is actually a fairly bad way to die. Rather than adding any more of my alarmist ramblings, I will let two survivors put it in their own words.

First, the effects of many years of repeated low exposures.

Here is one post with a warning:

http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=77584&#p621826

And three more posts that show why it is a good idea to pay attention to his warning:

http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=85384

If the story on low level exposure isn't enough to get your attention, here is an example of a single higher level exposure. Be sure to read all the posts in the thread that were made by JGtools:

I was exploring my options. Given my druthers I had rather use hardener, but if I try to paint myself I won't be using it if I don't have a supplied air system. I hear some folks say "you'll be ok" but I'm not going to risk it.
