Sounds just as bad as H2S gas on the rigs. Thanks for the info, I have used brake cleaner many times and then got the part hot cutting it so I am glad nothing has happened yet.

X2 Ben! I didnt know how dangerous the chlorinated is though

I always use non-chlorinated too. Every once in a while the chlorinated because it works on some tough stuff with out using a whole case of non to do the same thing.

FEW MORE SAFETY TIPS FELLAS:

Chlorinated= non flammable, stinky, slow drying

Non-chlorinated= Strong flammable oder, fast dry, exploive vapors!

NOW, the non-chlorinated has a nasty component in it called Tolulene! An instructor i had back in Wyotech, used to be an autobody tech and he washed his hands off with laqcor thinner somtimes, well a major component of thinner is tolulene! He has 3 big black spots on his liver from tolulene poisioning! Its eventually going to kill his liver. Ever notice how non-clorinated brake cleaner smells like thinner? There ya go, bad stuff too. I were latex gloves at work most the time to help keep that crap from getting in my blood because we use it alot. Just an FYI
