Health and Safety Folder

Folder Health and Safety Folder

Welcome to the IPCA’s Health and Safety Folder. Here you will find Health and Safety information about many of the craft products used by polymer clay artists. 

The information was collected and organized by Kerrie Venner, former IPCA Vice President of Education & Outreach.

The H&S Folder is organised in the following way:

  • An Index to the contents. This is your place to begin.

  • The list of MSDS. The MSDS (Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheets) present the technical specifications of each product, the disposal requirements and any relevant hazards to health and environment. Everything that is manufactured is required by law to have such documents. Here, you can find out if any of the ingredients have any reported adverse effects on health; any special ways of disposal of the product; storage recommendations; what to do if the product is accidentally eaten, got onto skin or into the eyes; and any other facts that might be useful. One thing to note is that these guidelines are aimed at the product in large quantities – for the manufacturer, warehouse or transportation company. What may seem frightening, for example, what to do if the product catches fire, is not really relevant for the clayer in their studio. It would be of interest, though for the store selling the product.

  • Your guide to reading the MSDS. Technical terms explained.

  • FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions).

Disclaimer – whilst we will endeavour to ensure all the information on this site is accurate, we are not experts, and the information is provided as a guide to general use of the product according to the instructions on the packaging.

Refer to the MSDS information sheets from the original manufacturers if there is ANY question about the information contained in the MSDS. The manufacturers are required to keep their MSDS update.
