Sicotan Orange K 2383
68186-92-5 269-054-2 chrome tungsten titanium yellow, (Ti,Cr,W)O2 Pigment Yellow 163 / 77897 Sicotan® Orange K 2383 is a practically insoluble rutile pigment based on chromium[III]/tungsten[VI]/titanium dioxide. Chromium[III] oxide and tungsten[VI] are absorbed by the rutile lattice. The heavy metal oxides thus lose their chemical, physical and physiological properties. The toxicological and ecological properties therefore correspond largely to those of titanium dioxide rutile. In animal studies of other chromium titanium yellow pigments, they did not display acute toxicity. Feeding tests on rats to determine the chronic toxicity revealed no toxicological finding whatever. No acute irritant effect was shown in tests to determine the acute irritation of the skin and mucous membranes. Extreme exposure to dust may lead to a brief irritation of the eyes by mechanical influence. No sensitizing effects have been reported during our experience of many years of handling chromium titanium yellow pigments. Since Sicotan® Orange K 2383 is inert and practically insoluble in water, it does not pose a hazard for the environment. The pigment can be removed mechanically from effluents. If it is dumped on a controlled dumpsite, dissolved heavy metals are not given off to the seepage water. If articles colored with Sicotan® Orange K 2383 are incinerated, the pigment is recovered in the original form from the residual ash. no hazard to waters (VwVwS of July 27, 2005, annex 1) (Germany) Labeling according to the German Ordinance on dangerous substances or corresponding EU directives: no labeling required

not hazardous under transport regulation Sicotan® Orange K 2383 does not contain any lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and mercury compounds in the formulation. The sum of the total contents of these elements, according to tests on standard samples, is less than 100 mg/kg. It is thus below the limits laid down in the EU packaging directives, 94/62/EC, and the American CONEG model. The EU end-of life vehicles directive
