The Sherwin-Williams Company recently announced that it will be phasing out the use of methylene chloride in its paint removal products by the end of the year. Do you agree with this move?

Absolutely a good move. In reality, SW is 2 decades behind, especially with the advent of soy based strippers. MEK is bad news if you don't wear a respirator for both short term and long term health effects.

Even an AP respirator isn't enough without meaningful ventilation...MEK is bad enough news that, depending on where you are using it, supplied air is the only real safe option.
