CARC paint contains isocyanate (HDI) which is highly irritating to skin and respiratory
system. High concentrations of HDI can produce symptoms of itching and reddening of skin, a
burning sensation in throat and nose and watering of the eyes. In extreme concentrations, HDI
can cause cough, shortness of breath, pain during respiration, increased sputum production,
and chest tightness. The following precautions must be taken whenever using CARC paint:
DO NOT let skin or eyes come in contact with CARC paint. Always wear protective
equipment (gloves, ventilation mask, safety goggles, etc).
DO NOT use CARC paint without adequate ventilation.
NEVER weld or cut CARC-coated materials.
BE AWARE of CARC paint exposure symptoms; symptoms can occur a few days after
initial exposure. Seek medical help immediately if symptoms are detected.
Using a wire scratch brush, remove paint from area at least four in. (102 mm) around area to be repaired.
Cut hasp (2) from stowage box (6).
Inspect latch, lid and inside of stowage box (6) for dirt and debris and clean all components with water,
detergent and stiff bristled brush.
Inspect all weldments for cracks or other damage.
