FYI, for suggestions like this, there are explosion proof blowers. IE; One's purpose designed not to create any sparks with their motors. Or to create enough static electricity via their moving high volumes of air, to ignite hazardous atmospheres.
And no, I'm not joking about the latter, it's real.
Something like that is worth doing right. If you're going to do it. And the best option, is an external clean air source, fed through a mask with an air hose. One fed by a proper compressor
, purpose designed to create clean, breathable air. Not a paint
, or shop compressor
As with some glues, even breathing low levels of them can; glue the air sacs in your lungs shut, & or cause brain & organ damage. Ditto on many types of paint
. With much of it being permanent, if you breath the wrong stuff. Like say, LPU.
And many of the masks & cartridges out there can't get you enough clean air to breath, if you're spraying paint inside of an enclosed space. Thus my suggestion above.
Different take on this insulation
When you're choosing an adhesive
to do this job with, don't pick something which, when you later need to remove some of the insulation
& liner, requires you to use a heat gun & a paint scraper in order to pull it loose. Thus destroying everything in the process. Especially if you have any wire runs behind it. Or later, wish to alter your cabinetry, etc.
Plus, it's worth buying
a little extra material now, for just such an event. In case you have to fully redo a panel or three, sometime down the road.
Just a think.
