The product of agglomerating iron ore fines, concentrates, iron sinter, and other iron-bearing materials. Includes pellets, nodules and briquettes.
Skin contact with rust,
which can contain several kind of iron oxides, has been very common
since time immemorial in everyday life of humans. However, skin
sensitisation owing to dermal contact with rust has not been reported in
literature as a recognized problem. Moreover, as iron oxides are
practically insoluble in the aqueous layer of the skin, exposure to iron
ions will be negligible, which means that skin sensitization by
dissolved iron can be ruled out.
publication was identified in the public domain investigating
sensitisation effects of iron oxides. Guinea pigs were tested for skin
with the three following iron oxides: Fe2O3
(iron oxide black), Fe2O3 iron oxide red and iron oxide yellow
results were negative. All
three iron oxides are not considered as dermal sensitizers based on this
No classification required. Iron oxides did
not exert any skin sensitising effects.
