Re: Nickel is cancerous

Yeahbut ... This paint is a water based urethane, with embedded nickle flakes (not powder or dust). It's UV resistant (hardly important indoors!), and not prone to flake, chip or spall. The carrier is an oxygen barrier, so oxidation isn't a problem. Standard solvents (including water) don't affect it once it has cured (not dried!). So after application, what's the mechanism for getting enough into the lungs or onto the skin to do damage?

Agree with your colophon. In fact, I suspect that's the ONLY thing it'll be used for.
