Help!

is using a high temp glue gun to cut foam hazardous to my health


i have recently been using a high-temp glue gun to make the edges smooth instead of sanding them. I am melting fan-fold foam, and i am wondering if it might be bad for me, as I am usually naeseated afterwards.

YES!!!!!!! EPP fumes (from burning/melting) can blister the throat and breathing passages...not sure about fan fold but certainly not a good idea to inhale those fumes either. Adequate ventilation is essential!!!!!!
