does nec address paint/popcorn inside j-boxes?
Apparently, for the big Fortune 500 sleazebag tract-shack developers, having their undocumented faux-electricians take 3 seconds to pop one of those plastic rough-out covers on their freshly installed and wired ceiling boxes, makes the difference between their stock price soaring or crashing. :rolleyes:
Thus I've seen high levels of spray paint--and even that foam textured ceiling crap--coating the inside of j-boxes, and also every conductor, connector and wire-nut in that box. Best practices--NOT.
Seems like there's potential fire and wire-ID issues... what sayeth the NEC?
Just wondering, thanks in advance.
