The following is from Awlgrip's web site. The objective is to keep vapors and mist off body surfaces and out of the lungs. There is more than one way to do that. Awlgrip does not certify respirators. The one I am using is NIOSH approved for isocynates. I wear a hooded painters suit and a face shield.

"Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. Use solvent resistant safety eyewear with splash guards. Solvent impermeable gloves, clothing and boots should be worn to prevent skin contact. When applying an Awlgrip, Awlcraft 2000, Awlcraft SE or any other isocyanate containing product, a respirator that is approved for use with such products must be used. A positive pressure air supplied respirator (TC19C NIOSH/MSHA approved) is recommended.

I can't even imagine wearing all of that in 90 degree temps. I prefer roll and tip, just easier to me and less dangerous.

And it avoids all that masking prep that spraying requires.

If you follow Awlgrip's advice, you better be wearing a non-absorbant painter's coverall and a face/eye shield (everything except the respirator) to deflect splatters/spills...even if you roll and tip. Your exposure is not much different than when using a low overspray turbine system. You prefer roll and tip because that's what you know and it's cheap. You've also probably seen photos of spray operations in booths using high pressure paint guns...nasty clouds of vapor and obviously dangerous. You might want to read up on high performance HVLP turbines. I don't paint...spray (HVLP only), roll or brush...when it's 90 degrees with bugs flying around and too hot to wear proper protective devices. Your concern with isocyanates is well placed, but it seems you don't follow your own (and Awlgrip's) advice. That stuff can kill you....

I had our boat painted last spring. They tip/rolled (really, mainly rolled) Awlgrip and it came out very nice. They did it outside in a working yard. 90% of the job was prep. They mixed 8-12oz at a time.
With the 20yrs you got out of your current Awlgrip, I am not sure why you would not use it again.

The manufacturer has considerable liability, so he must overstate safety in order t cover his ass.
Working outdoors, or with good ventilation, you’ll likely get away with less than prescribed, however do be cautious.
That said, I recently lost a buddy who was the local Awlgrip pro, not fond of using much in the way of PPE, he didn’t see 50...

A rough way to learn how to roll and tip but youíll be a pro when youíre done.

There are some pretty good videos on roll and tip. It’s best if you can have two people. We did ok at it and better at the end. We used the best foam brushes we could buy and chunked them the first sign of them feeling funky.
We were using interlux single part and probably easier to apply. The faster we moved the better and not wasting much time mistakes , just keep moving along.
Good luck with it. And one more thing make sure you have something to drink and play some good music.
