Myth 2: "Modern guns don't mist like the old ones so are much safer"

Truth 2:

All modern guns have to be at least 65% efficient so it is true that they produce less mist. But that assumes that they are set up as the manufacturer intended – and that still doesn't make them safe!

Here are some video clips that show the differences between the types of gun but note that the modern gun still produces average levels of isocyanate over 1000 ug/m3 (over 50 times the workplace exposure value, which itself is not a safe value).
