    Just a heads up guys!

    Toxicity: Eye and skin irritant. May be irritating by
    inhalation. Moderately toxic by ingestion. When
    heated to temperatures above 300°F (150°F) in the
    presence of air, this product can form
    formaldehyde vapors. Formaldehyde is a potential
    cancer hazard and a known skin and respiratory
    sensitizer. Vapors irritate eyes, nose and throat.
    Safe handling conditions may be maintained by
    keeping vapor concentrations below the OSHA
    permissible limit for formaldehyde.

    yeah you gotta use the high temp stuff if you're going to use that. The Ultra Copper High Temp is rated up to 700 degrees.

    Edit: dang, even the high temp stuff has that warning! Good to know, I figured if it listed 700 degrees, it'd be good to 700 degrees. Guess I need to read better next time!

    dont be to scared. the ozone coming off your computer hardware displaces enough oxygen to be more harmful than the voc's in the permatex. besides once the voc's become airborne they are gone.
