toluene diisocyanate
even the name is scary

Although it smells nicely to me - reminds me childhood, when I could 
smell various chemicals in the air every day, as I was born near by 
zinc+lead ironworks and later lived all my life in the heart of Poland's 
industry during times when there was no such thing as environmental 
regulations. And that particular smell was one of my favorites.

I saw this done on a unit that I got in, and it looks like a really neat way to do rework, but I don’t really know what to search for online.
