FP-Pigments Opacity Pigment™ powder products which contain 1% or more of TiO2 pigment, have been analysed by EN 15051-2 dustiness test for their respirable TiO2 particle concentration. All FP-Opacity Pigment™ powder products had less than 1% of particles with an aerodynamic diameter ≤ 10 μm. Based on the results, the classification criteria for TiO2 mixtures are not met and it is not mandatory to classify and label FP-Opacity Pigment™ powder products according to Annex VI of CLP Regulation EC1272/2008. Therefore FP-Pigments has decided that it will not classify FP-Opacity Pigment™ powder products according to Annex VI of CLP Regulation EC1272/2008.
FP-Pigments will add EUH212 and EUH210 statements to FP-Opacity Pigment™ powder product labels and regulatory documents on a voluntary basis.
