Sicopal Yellow L 1110
CAS number EINECS number Description Colour Index Chemical nature 14059-33-7 237-898-0 bismuth vanadate/bismuth molybdenate, BiVO4/Bi2MoO6 Pigment Yellow 184 / 77 1740 Sicopal® Yellow L 1110 consists of fine granules of bismuth vanadate/ bismuth molybdenate. In animal studies, Sicopal® Yellow L 1110 did not display acute toxicity. No acute irritant effect was shown in tests to determine the acute irritation of skin and mucous membranes. Animal studies gave some indication to inhalational toxicity. Changes in lung weight and lung tissue were found in rats exposed to high concentrations of dust. Toxic effects can be observed only when the concentration in the lungs exceeds a certain level that usually does not occur under the usual conditions of industrial hygiene and, in particular, when processing low-dusting products. In experiments on animals, bismuth vanadate pigments did not display sensitizing effects. Bismuth compounds are not known to have caused damage to the environment and they are not be expected to. Vanadium compounds except vanadium pentoxide have toxic effects on humans, animals and plants only at relatively high concentrations. Vanadium is an essential trace element for humans and animals. In experiments on the ecotoxicity on fish and bacteria, bismuth vanadate pigments did not display toxic effects. Due to their insolubility in water, dissolved heavy metals are not expected to be given off to the seepage water of a controled dumpsite. 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 due to a particulate matter fraction of < 0.1 % When ground to powder, this labeling is required: Xn R 48/20 harmful danger of serious damage to health by prolonged exposure, harmful by inhalation

Heavy metal contents

No lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium or mercury have intentionally been added to Sicopal® Yellow L 1110. 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 cobalt < < < < < 5 mg/kg 3 mg/kg 10 mg/kg 20 mg/kg 20 mg/kg Lead copper nickel mercury selenium 20 mg/kg 20 mg/kg 20 mg/kg 1 mg/kg 1 mg/kg
