SECTION 3: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Crystalline silica dust may be present if unfired, dried glaze is excessively handled and allowed to create dust.
Mists from spraying may contain crystalline silica.
Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation, Ingestion; absorption through the skin is negligible.
SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
- If inhaled: May cause irritation; remove from exposure
- If on skin: May cause irritation; wash skin with soap and water
- If in eyes: May cause irritation; flush eyes with large quantities of water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists after washing, contact a physician.
- If swallowed: Contact a physician.
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
|Suitable Extinguishing Media||None|

SECTION 11: TOXICOLOGY INFORMATION
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.
