Industrial painting contractors and epoxy flooring contractors often deal with hazardous liquids.  But at first glance, many of these liquids can appear to be harmless buckets of thick, colored liquid.  But once you begin to see what they liquids are made of, you’ll be more aware of their potential to harm and cause damage to your health.
