|Conditions to Avoid:||Fumes from firing in kiln; Mist created from spray application.|
|Hazardous Decomposition or By-Products:||N/A|
Primary Route(s) of Entry: Dermal, Inhalation. The highest threat of inhalation exists during the excessive handling of dried, unfired glazed ware and/or during spray application.
These mixtures contain silica, a know carcinogen. Inhalation is the only route of entry into the body that can cause Silicosis.
The water-based, premixed products should be non-toxic during recommended use.
Pigments are various metals and metal compounds (may contain one or more of following: tin, iron, zirconium, zinc, cobalt, chromium (III) vanadium, praseodymium, aluminum, cadmium, copper, selenium, manganese).
The risk of exposure to these metals is minimal due to the low percentage used in the glaze formulas. Dermal exposure is negligible as these metals have poor dermal absorption.
Cobalt, and cadmium are considered animal carcinogen. Silica (quartz) is considered a human carcinogen.
Frits are fused silica glass like substances. The bioavailability is limited because of the physical nature of the frit.
These products conform to ASTM-4236 and have been certified by an independent, 3rd party toxicologist to be NON TOXIC.
