Sicopal Green K 9710
CAS number EINECS number Description Colour Index Chemical nature 68186-85-6 269-047-4 cobalt green, (Co,Ni,Zn)2TiO4 Pigment Green 50 / 77 377 Sicopal® Green K 9710 is a spinel pigment based on cobalt[II], nickel[III] and zinc titanate. It is practically insoluble; the heavy metal oxides are firmly incorporated into the spinel lattice whereby they loose their chemical, physical and physiological properties. In animal studies, Sicopal® Green K 9710 did not display acute toxicity. No acute irritant effect was shown in tests to determine the acute irritation of skin and mucous membranes. Due to its insolubility it can be considered non-bioavailable. Soluble cobalt compounds as well as cobalt metal may have a sensitizing effect. However, none have been reported during our experience of many years of handling cobalt green pigments. Since Sicopal® Green K 9710 is practically insoluble in water, it does not pose a hazard for the environment. On controled dumpsites, no dissolved heavy metals are released into the seepage water. During incineration of articles colored with it, Sicopal® Green K 9710 is recovered in its original form in the residual ash. WGK 0, no hazard to waters (VwVwS of May 17, 1999, annex 3) Germany Labeling according to the German Ordinance on dangerous substances or corresponding EU directives: no labeling required Dangerous goods classification not hazardous under transport regulation

Heavy metal contents

No lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium or mercury have intentionally been added to Sicopal® Green K 9710. Analyses of representative standard samples have shown that the sum of the total content of these elements is less than 100 mg/kg and thus below the limit laid down in the EU Directive on packaging and packaging waste, 94/62/EC, and the American CONEG model. The requirements of the EU Directive on electronic devices, 2002/95/EC, and the EU Directive on end-of-live vehicles, 2000/53/EC, are met. On average, the content of technically unavoidable impurities are as follows: antimony arsenic cadmium chromium < < < 5 mg/kg 3 mg/kg 10 mg/kg 100 mg/kg copper lead mercury selenium 100 mg/kg 50 mg/kg 1 mg/kg 1 mg/kg
