just check the msds. i was at first nervous due to the fact that they claim to have mold and mildew inhibitors as well as polymer modified.
according to the msds only portland cement, ti dioxide and silica sand.

here are links to that info

is ti dioxide ok?
I looked up portland cement and they have trace metal also


Due to the use of substances mined from the earth’s crust, trace amounts of naturally occurring, potentially harmful constituents may be detected during chemical analysis. Portland cement may contain up to 0.75% insoluble residue. A small amount of this residue includes free crystalline silica. Portland cement also may contain trace (<0.05%) amounts of chromium salts or compounds (including hexavalent chromium) or other metals (including nickel compounds) found to be hazardous or toxic in some chemical forms. These metals are present mostly as trace substitutions within the principal minerals. Other trace constituents may include potassium and sodium sulfate compounds.
