SECTION 3 – HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
This product is not considered to be a hazardous substance as defined under OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200).
Vapors form from this product and may travel or be moved by air currents and ignited by pilot lights, other flames, smoking, sparks, heaters, electrical equipment, static discharges or other ignition sources at locations distant from product handling point. Vapors from this material may settle in low or confined areas or travel a long distance to an ignition source and flash back explosively. This material may produce a floating fire hazard.
SECTION 4 – FIRST AID MEASURES
Flush eyes thoroughly with large amounts of water, lifting lids periodically for at least fifteen minutes. Get medical attention if redness or irritation occurs.
Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Remove severely contaminated clothing. Seek medical attention in the unlikely event that skin irritation occurs (redness etc.).
Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention if breathing is difficult or lung irritation is present.
Do no give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting. Get immediate medical attention.
Please note that there has been no evidence of the health effects listed for this product, nor would it anticipate the occurrence of these health effects when the product is used under normal conditions.
HUMAN HEALTH DATA
Primary Route(s) of Exposure: Eye Contact; Skin Contact; Inhalation
Human Effect and Symptoms of Overexposure:
On the basis of Animal Toxicity Data, Face and Body Professionals expects this product to be non-irritating to the eyes and skin and essentially non-toxic by ingestion. However, excessive exposure to airborne dust (from pigment that has dried) may reduce visibility and/or cause unpleasant deposits in the eyes, ears and nose. Injury to the skin or mucous membrane can occur by direct mechanical action or by rigorous skin cleaning necessary for removal of pigment.
Prolonged inhalation (6 to 10 years) of iron oxide fume has been reported to produce changes in lung x-rays of exposed individuals. This condition, siderosis, is considered to be a benign pneumoconiosis that exhibits no adverse health effects. Siderosis has been observed among occupations such as arc-welders where iron oxide fumes are present. To the best of our knowledge, this condition has not been observed after prolonged exposure to iron oxide pigments.

SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Remove possible causes of ignition – Do not smoke. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Ensure sufficient supply of air/ventilation. Avoid inhalation and contact with eyes and skin.
Airborne Organic pigment dust (caused by drying of liquid pigment) may be an explosive hazard. Secure possible sources of ignition and avoid dusting.
For liquid pigments, collect using absorbent materials. Diluting with water is possible. Flush residue using copious water. For dry powder spills, inert materials such as sand may be added to control dusting prior to cleanup. Avoid excessive generation of dust. If dust is generated, use appropriate respiratory protection. Industrial grade vacuum sweepers are also recommended. Place spilled material into appropriate waste containers for disposal.
For liquid pigments, collect using absorbent materials. Diluting with water is possible. Flush residue using copious water. Dispose at suitable refuse site according to local and national official regulations. For dry powders, contain spilled material immediately with an inert substance such as sand or earth. Use plastic or aluminum shovel to transfer diluted waste material into appropriate containers for disposal.
Materials, which cannot be recycled into your process, should be land filled in accordance with Federal, State and Local environmental control regulations.
