Hello, I'm getting ready to primer some wood paneling in my family room and have read some excellent advise that I should use BIN Shellac Base Primer Sealer. I got some and was reading the directions where it talks about using a brush, roller and then about spraying it on. Right after this it mentions using a NIOSH approved respiratory protection, etc. My question is, is that only necessary if a person sprays it or should I even get one a NIOSH approved respiratory if I plan to brush it on? Also, can anyone recommend a good NIOSH approved respirator? I've seen a 3M product but don't know much about em. Thank you, Joe

BIN is good stuff. I rolled BIN in my entire kitchen because of some stubborn grease stains that were trapped behind joint compound. (the guys who replaced a segment of the drywall didn't clean the other areas before they taped the seams) I didn't use a respirator and I was fine. The fumes from the ammonia that I used to clean the brushes was far more stronger than BIN.

Oh and BIN got the job done. Blocked grease stains...thats good BIN.

In my newbpainter opinion, I would say if its only a one weekend thing, you'll be fine without a respirator.

I always brush and roller BIN. If I was gonna spray it I think I'd want a full dive suit:laughing: Those alcohol fumes can get to you in a hurry, and it's a skin irritant, too. I always create cross ventilation as best I can and put a fan in front of a window to exhaust the fumes. The 3M #8577 mask, rated for nuisance level vapors, works fine in that situation. If I can't properly ventilate a room, then I go to my respirator.
