The material safety data sheet for HPLC grade water is one of rhe best. In case of spillage on skin ...............wash off with water.

Cement, spray paints, knives,airbrushes etc. How do us modellers survive. Maybe I could start a modelmakers insurance company.

You forgot to mention insomnia, amnesia, anxiety, stress, depression, anger, frustration, disillusionment, sexual disfunction, fatigue, poor eyesight and memory loss and memory loss and memory loss and did I mention memory loss I can't remember if I did or not, probably those damned glues have addled my brain!

I just found this thread after searching the site and thought I share my current situation with prolonged use of these toxic materials that we stick things together with.

Over the last 12months or so I seemed to have developed a very worrying and most annoying allergy. I'm branding it GluFlu! Sadly, the cumulative effect of continuous exposure has now meant I literally cannot currently spend any time in the vicinity of an open pot of adhesive, without succumbing 12hrs later to one or even two days of really bad flu-like symptoms! So, I’m having to take a step back from any type of construction work! Hopefully not indefinitely!

For anybody who might be interested this all started after switching to both white and green top Tamiya adhesives a couple of years ago. I think the catalyst might have been due to one spillage in particular and even though the mancave was thoroughly aired out and the cutting mat replaced, my nasal mucus membranes must have taken a huge hit and I think subsequent and regular exposure has triggered progressively worse nasty flu like episodes.

Thankfully I can still airbrush (always with a mask), brush paint with acrylics, weather with enamels etc, without issue so, it’s just painting, weathering and finishing projects for me for the foreseeable.

It’s not like I've not got way too many of them
