Dear bubbah-ga; Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. Dispersion Orange 37 is a dispersion class dye used for dying synthetic fibers in textiles and other products. Some anthraquinone (AQ) disperse dyes have expressed allergic properties and can are believed to cause problems such as contact dermatitis in some people with sensitivities. While there is no regulation on the usage of these dyes in the United States in terms of hazardous material, nine of these types of dyes have been banned by the European Union: Disperse Blue 1 Disperse Blue 3 Disperse Blue 35 Disperse Blue 106 Disperse Blue 124 Disperse Yellow 3 Disperse Orange 3 Disperse Orange 37/76 (the one you are referring to) Disperse Red 1 DISPERSION DYES http://www.hansecontrol.de/73.0.html?&L=2 The US Material Data Safety Sheet on the chemical warns that the product ?may cause mild skin and eye irritation? but does not list the product as a particular exposure threat and does not categorize the product as a substantial health risk: BUCKEYE COLOR AND CHEMICAL COMPANY MSDS ? MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET http://buckeye-color.com/msds/LambdaPlast%20Dyes/LambdaPlast%20Orange%20E2GL.pdf (see Section 7) I hope you find that my answer exceeds your expectations.
