SECTION 2: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Classification of mixture: Non-classified (1999/45/EEC)
Each glaze family is a mixture of ceramic material containing, water, non-leaded frits, clay, and other minerals and color pigments. Contains potential carcinogens: Crystalline silica (quartz), as an inhalation hazard, may be present if:
- Unfired, dried glaze is excessively handled and allowed to create dust.
- Mist is present after spray application
A few pigments may contain a very small amount of zirconium encapsulated cadmium, titanium dioxide, and other metals. Other ingredients present have no known acute toxicity.
GHS Label Elements: None Required
Other Hazards: None known
SECTION 3: COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Each glaze family contain proprietary mixtures of ceramic materials (listed below) and color pigments. The Raku glaze line is classified as non-hazardous.

SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
|Calcium Carbonate||471-34-1||5 mg/m3||10.0 mg/m3|
The main glaze ingredients do not have formal Exposure Limits. Some pigments contain metals that have exposure limits (Co, TiO2, Cu, Cr, Mn) but are used in low levels.
These glazes are non-hazardous liquid mixtures of ceramic materials containing, water, non-leaded frits, clay, and other minerals and color pigments. These mixtures have no TLV or PEL
- Engineer Control: Adequate ventilation (local exhaust) if spray application is used.
- Respiratory Protection: Use a NIOSH approved respirator if spray application is used.
- Protective Gloves: Not normally needed.
- Eye Protection: Wear appropiate eye protection or safety glasses to keep mist out of eyes if spray application is used.
- Personal Protective Clothing or Equipment: Wear appropriate clean, protective clothing such as, but not limited to, overalls, smocks, and aprons.
SECTION 9: PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES
|Appearance:||Colored and/or Clear Liquid Mixtures|
|Upper/Lower Explosive Limits:||None|
|Partition Coefficient (octanol/water):||N/A|
|Solubility in Water:||Partial|
|Auto ignition temperature:||None|
SECTION 10: STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
|Possibility of Hazardous Reactions:||None Known|
|Conditions to Avoid:||Fumes from firing in kiln; Mist created from spray application.|
|Incompatible Material:||None Known|
|Hazardous Decomposition or By-Products:||None Known|
SECTION 11: TOXICOLOGY INFORMATION
Primary Route(s) of Entry: Dermal, Inhalation.
Hazard to Humans: None during normal use. The highest threat of inhalation exists during the excessive handling of dried, unfired glazed ware and/or during spray application.
|Acute Toxicity: N/A||Carcinogenicity: N/A|
|Skin Corrosion.Irritation: N/A||Reproductive Toxicity: N/A|
|Serious Eye Damage/Irritation: N/A||STOT-Single Exposure: N/A|
|Respiratory/Skin Sensitization: N/A||STOT-Repeated Exposure: N/A|
|Germ Cell Mutagenicity: N/A||Aspiration Hazard: N/A|
These mixtures contain silica, a know carcinogen. Inhalation is the route of entry into the body that can lead to the development of Silicosis.
These water-based, premixed products should be non-toxic during recommended use.
Some of the pigments may contain small amounts of various forms of metals (Sn, Mn, TiO2, Cu, Zr, V, Fe. Co, Cr, Ni, Cd ), some of which are considered carcinogenic. The metals in pigments may be in form of frits, spinel or formed from high temperature calcination that may have a different bioavailability than the metal itself. Silica and pigments in the glaze should be non-toxic during recommended use.
