First Aid and Protective Equipment

This section describes general first-aid procedures and recommendations for protective equipment to minimize the risks from ingredient exposure. If professional medical attention is necessary, take the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the exact ingredient involved to the attending physician.

Skin Contact

Binder contains food dyes and will stain clothing/skin. Wear food-safe gloves to avoid skin contact, if desired. Should binder come in contact with skin, wash thoroughly with soap and warm water. If skin is irritated, get medical attention. Stained clothing may be washed in a normal washing machine.

Eye Contact

Food dyes in binders may cause irritation. Use caution when disposing of waste binder to avoid getting binder in the eyes. If binder comes in contact with the eye, flush immediately with large amounts of running water. If eyes continue to be irritated after washing, seek medical attention. Eye-wash facilities and a first-aid kit should be readily available and close to the binder/printer. Please refer to the SDS for more detailed information on first-aid.

Contact Lenses

If binder splashes into the eye when contact lenses are worn, flush the eye with water immediately. Verify that flushing has removed the contact lens from the eye. Discard contact lenses that come into contact with binder.

Fume Inhalation

The printer, and its ingredients, do not emit offensive odors during idle times or operation.

Ingestion

All build ingredients used in the printer are fit for consumption, barring a specific person's allergic reaction or intolerance. Consult the SDS for each powder and binder you use for a list of ingredients.
