CARC paint contains isocyanate (HDI) which is highly irritating to skin and respiratory
system. High concentrations of HDI can produce symptoms of itching and reddening of
skin, a burning sensation in throat and nose and watering of the eyes. In extreme
concentrations, HDI can cause cough, shortness of breath, pain during respiration,
increased sputum production, and chest tightness. The following precautions must be
taken whenever using CARC paint:

respirators in use.
