Don't use spatter spray. Use Pam. It does the same thing costs less and the fumes won't kill you.

I started my working life as a refrigeration/ ac mech and brazing pipes that carry gas produce fozgene as brake cleaner is a hydrocarbon the by product of burning it is the same this shot is deadly and accumulative so the more your inhale the higher the levels in your system it is basically a firm of cianide gas

Did you ever use one of the old burner type leak detectors? Nobody told us that they made phosgene when they detected freon until they had a new more expensive detector to sell us.

Yeah that's all we used for the first 6 or 7 years until we got electrical detectors you could smell the phosgene when you hit a big leak with the lamp

I've been welding for years and was professionally trained. I take every safety precaution possible. I did not know this so thanks for the post. It goes to show no matter how long you do something you can learn some thing new.
