SECTION 3 COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS

SECTION 4 FIRST AID MEASURES

Description of first aid measures

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed 

Treat symptomatically.

 For acute or short term repeated exposures to iron and its derivatives:

  •  Always treat symptoms rather than history. 

  • In general, however, toxic doses exceed 20 mg/kg of ingested material (as elemental iron) with lethal doses exceeding 180 mg/kg. 

  • Control of iron stores depend on variation in absorption rather than excretion. Absorption occurs through aspiration, ingestion and burned skin. 

  • Hepatic damage may progress to failure with hypoprothrombinaemia and hypoglycaemia. Hepatorenal syndrome may occur. 

  • Iron intoxication may also result in decreased cardiac output and increased cardiac pooling which subsequently produces hypotension.

  • Serum iron should be analysed in symptomatic patients. Serum iron levels (2-4 hrs post-ingestion) greater that 100 ug/dL indicate poisoning with levels, in excess of 350 ug/dL, being potentially serious. Emesis or lavage (for obtunded patients with no gag reflex)are the usual means of decontamination. 

  • Activated charcoal does not effectively bind iron.

  •  Catharsis (using sodium sulfate or magnesium sulfate) may only be used if the patient already has diarrhoea. 

  • Deferoxamine is a specific chelator of ferric (3+) iron and is currently the antidote of choice. It should be administered parenterally. [Ellenhorn and Barceloux: Medical Toxicology]

  • For acute or short term repeated exposures to dichromates and chromates: 

  • Absorption occurs from the alimentary tract and lungs. 

  • The kidney excretes about 60% of absorbed chromate within 8 hours of ingestion. Urinary excretion may take up to 14 days.

  • Establish airway, breathing and circulation. Assist ventilation.

  •  Induce emesis with Ipecac Syrup if patient is not convulsing, in coma or obtunded and if the gag reflex is present.

  • Otherwise use gastric lavage with endotracheal intubation. 

  • Fluid balance is critical. Peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis or exchange transfusion may be effective although available data is limited. 

  • British Anti-Lewisite, ascorbic acid, folic acid and EDTA are probably not effective. 

  • There are no antidotes.

  •  Primary irritation, including chrome ulceration, may be treated with ointments comprising calcium-sodium-EDTA. This, together with the use of frequently renewed dressings, will ensure rapid healing of any ulcer which may develop. 

The mechanism of action involves the reduction of Cr (VI) to Cr(III) and subsequent chelation; the irritant effect of Cr(III)/ protein complexes is thus avoided. [ILO Encyclopedia]

 [Ellenhorn and Barceloux: Medical Toxicology]

  • Manifestation of aluminium toxicity include hypercalcaemia, anaemia, Vitamin D refractory osteodystrophy and a progressive encephalopathy (mixed dysarthria-apraxia of speech, asterixis, tremulousness, myoclonus, dementia, focal seizures). Bone pain, pathological fractures and proximal myopathy can occur. 

  • Symptoms usually develop insidiously over months to years (in chronic renal failure patients) unless dietary aluminium loads are excessive. 

  • Serum aluminium levels above 60 ug/ml indicate increased absorption. Potential toxicity occurs above 100 ug/ml and clinical symptoms are present when levels exceed 200 ug/ml. 

  • Deferoxamine has been used to treat dialysis encephalopathy and osteomalacia. CaNa2EDTA is less effective in chelating aluminium.

[Ellenhorn and Barceloux: Medical Toxicology] 

  • For acute or short-term repeated exposures to highly alkaline materials:

  • Respiratory stress is uncommon but present occasionally because of soft tissue edema.

  • Unless endotracheal intubation can be accomplished under direct vision, cricothyroidotomy or tracheotomy may be necessary. 

  • Oxygen is given as indicated.

  • The presence of shock suggests perforation and mandates an intravenous line and fluid administration. 

  • Damage due to alkaline corrosives occurs by liquefaction necrosis whereby the saponification of fats and solubilisation of proteins allow deep penetration into the tissue.

Alkalis continue to cause damage after exposure.

INGESTION

  • Milk and water are the preferred diluents 

(No more than 2 glasses of water should be given to an adult.)

  • Neutralising agents should never be given since exothermic heat reaction may compound injury.

* Catharsis and emesis are absolutely contra-indicated. 

* Activated charcoal does not absorb alkali.

* Gastric lavage should not be used. 

Supportive care involves the following:

  • Withhold oral feedings initially. 

  • If endoscopy confirms transmucosal injury start steroids only within the first 48 hours.

  • Carefully evaluate the amount of tissue necrosis before assessing the need for surgical intervention.

  • Patients should be instructed to seek medical attention whenever they develop difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia). 

SKIN AND EYE: 

  • Injury should be irrigated for 20-30 minutes. 

Eye injuries require saline. [Ellenhorn & Barceloux: Medical Toxicology]

ARTISTSIC TINTS: INFORMATION AND SAFETY DATA SHEET www.artopiamosaics.com

Thank you for purchasing this product. Artistic Tints are a range of intense liquid colorants for tinting grout, adhesive, paint and other coatings. Artopia stocks 25 Exciting Colours. See website for the full colour range.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: DO NOT OPEN TUBE BY REVERSING CAP. Instead, pierce with a small pointed instrument to prevent spillage and to ensure the cap is kept clean. You will also need to wash hands and wipe surfaces if even a small amount is spilt, otherwise the colour can easily spread to other surfaces.

Prepare grout or adhesive (or other coating) in the usual manner. Add a small amount of the tint and stir. It is best to add a little at a time with a small stick, otherwise you may end up with a colour much deeper than you intended. You can create pastel shades by adding just a tiny amount of tint. You can increase the intensity of your grout/glue/paint by adding more. Do not add more than 10% tint content to your grout/glue/paint, or you can compromise the integrity of the base product.

Colours can be mixed together to create other colours. Colours can be made lighter or darker by adding white tint or white grout/adhesive.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Water soluble. UV stable. Be wary that extreme exposure to direct sunlight may cause fading over time.

Keep tubes tightly closed. Store in a dry, cool place. Keep away from direct sunlight and protect from freezing.

WARNING: Artistic Tints are extremely intense and a little bit goes a long way, which means without undue care the colour can spread where you don’t want it. Will stain clothing, furniture and surfaces, so handle with care.

SAFETY INFORMATION

Not classified as Dangerous Goods by criteria of the Australian Dangerous Goods Code for Transport by Road and Rail. This material is non-hazardous according to the criteria of Australian Safety and Compensation Council.

No adverse health effects expected if the product is handled in accordance with guidelines provided. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices. If mishandled symptoms may arise: skin irritation, eye irritation or damage, irritation to mouth, throat and digestive tract.

SAFETY INFORMATION: Avoid contact with skin and eyes and clothing. Do not ingest or inhale.

EYE CONTACT: In case of danger of splashes of product, wear safety glasses with side shields. Classified as a moderate eye irritant. If used incorrectly and eye contact is made, it may cause tearing, reddening and/or swelling.

SKIN CONTACT: May cause skin irritation. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in defatting and drying of the skin causing irritation and dermatitis (rash). Use protective gloves.

INHALATION & INGESTION: If used incorrectly inhalation may cause lung irritation. If used incorrectly ingestion may cause mild to severe symptoms of poisoning. Use mask.

First Aid Measures:

Inhalation: Provide fresh air, seek medical advice if necessary.

Skin Contact: Wash with plenty of water and seek medical attention if irritation develops. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Eye Contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Clean mouth with water. After doing so, drink plenty of water. If symptoms persist call a physician.

Notes to Physician: Symptomatic treatment.
