Re: i am re-naming my boat '5200'

Your hands are your biggest problem? I usually need to shave my head after working with the stuff.

Don't worry - the natural skin shedding cycle will remove the 5200 in a few weeks. Meanwhile, enjoy your extra gripping ability.

Something is wrong if you're using that much 5200.

Acetone (before the 5200 cures) removes it. Apply acetone to your skin at your own risk.

A little squirt of Anti-Bond will remove it, cured or not. Less toxic than 'tone.

Unless they make that stuff in gallon size, it is useless for when I work with 5200!

Acetone is not as harmful as most people think. It's actually one of the less harmful solvents. It's present normally in the human body, as part of the metabolism. Diabetics have a lot of it.

Acetone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's LD50 is about 3g/kg, about 8 times higher than methanol. It's a bit lower than toluene at 6g/kg, but I find it a really good sign for long term toxicity that acetone is commonly present in the body anyway.

Good practice when using any solvent is to wear disposable gloves.
