SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Information on toxicological effects
Acute toxicity:
N/A
LD/LC50 values that are relevant for classification:
No data
Skin irritation or corrosion:
Irritant to skin and mucous membranes.
Eye irritation or corrosion:
Irritating effect.
Sensitization:
May cause an allergic skin reaction.
Germ cell mutagenicity:
N/A
Carcinogenicity:
Suspected of causing cancer.
EPA-A: human carcinogen: sufficient evidence from epidemiologic studies to support a causal association between exposure and cancer.
IARC-2B: Possibly carcinogenic to humans: limited evidence in humans in the absence of
sufficient evidence in experimental animals.
NTP-R: Reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen: limited evidence from studies in humans or sufficient evidence from studies in experimental animals.
ACGIH A5: Not suspected as a human carcinogen: Not suspected as a human carcinogen on
the basis of properly conducted epidemiologic studies in humans.
Studies have sufficiently long follow-up, reliable exposure histories, sufficiently high dose, and adequate statistical power to conclude that exposure to the agent does not convey a significant risk of cancer to humans. Evidence suggesting a lack of carcinogenicity in experimental animals will be considered if it is supported by other relevant data.
The Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances (RTECS) contains tumorigenic and/or carcinogenic and/or neoplastic data for this substance.
Reproductive toxicity:
N/A
Specific target organ system toxicity - repeated exposure:
N/A
Specific target organ system toxicity - single exposure:
N/A
Aspiration hazard:
No effects known
Other information (about experimental toxicology):
Tumorigenic effects have been observed on tests with laboratory animals.
Reproductive effects have been observed on tests with laboratory animals.
Subacute to chronic toxicity:
Nickel and nickel compounds may cause a form of dermatitis known as nickel itch. They may also cause intestinal disorders, convulsions and asphyxia. Airborne nickel contaminated dusts are regarded as carcinogenic to the respiratory tract.
Titanium compounds are considered physiologically inert. There are no reported cases in the literature where titanium as such has caused human intoxication.
Subacute to chronic toxicity:
N/A
Additional toxicological information:
To the best of our knowledge the acute and chronic toxicity of this substance is not fully known.
