Crystalline Silica (Quartz, Cristobalite) is listed by IARC and NTP.
Long term exposure to high levels of silica dust, which can occur only when
sanding or abrading the dry film, may cause lung damage (silicosis) and
possibly cancer.
Ethylene Glycol is considered an animal teratogen. It has been shown to
cause birth defects in rats and mice at high doses when given in drinking

defects in humans.
Prolonged overexposure to solvent ingredients in Section 2 may cause
adverse effects to the liver and urinary systems.
