Best Answer

You need to wear a dust/mist respirator to prevent breathing in the dust. Powder coating powders have low or no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) So it is much healthier than breathing in liquid paint fumes. If you don't breathe in the dust (use a dust mask) there are no known ill effects.
