Despite a warning label reading "Do not use indoors because of flammability" on its carpet adhesive, the Para-Chem company was ordered by a jury in Akron, Ohio, in July to pay $8 million to two professional installers who were severely burned in an explosion when they tried to use the product indoors. One juror told the Akron Beacon Journal that he and his colleagues felt the warning did not go far enough in convincing the installers not to use the product indoors. [Akron Beacon Journal, 7-10-02]
Is there a reasonable way to use carpet adhesive outdoors? Must one tear off their roof before one can use it safely?
