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:
ALWAYS use air line respirators when using CARC paint unless air sampling shows
exposure to be below standards. Use chemical cartridge respirator if air sampling is
DO NOT let skin or eyes come in contact with CARC paint. Always wear protective
equipment (gloves, ventilation mask, safety goggles, etc.).
DO NOT use CARC paint without adequate ventilation.
NEVER weld or cut CARC-coated materials.
DO NOT grind or sand painted equipment without high-efficiency air purifying
respirators in use.
BE AWARE of CARC paint exposure symptoms; symptoms can occur a few days after
initial exposure. Seek medical help immediately if symptoms are detected.
Unsafe welding practices can cause serious injury from fire, explosions, or harmful agents.
Allow only authorized personnel to weld or cut metals, and follow safety precautions TC
