  •  11 Toxicological information

    • Acute toxicity:

    • Primary irritant effect:

    • on the skin:

    • Corrosive effect on skin and mucous membranes.
      Irritant to skin and mucous membranes.
    • on the eye:

    • Strong corrosive effect.
      Irritating effect.
    • Sensitization: No sensitizing effects known.

    • Subacute to chronic toxicity:

    • Lead and lead compounds may cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, loss of appetite, metallic taste, nausea, vomiting, lassitude, insomnia, muscle weakness, joint and muscle pain, irritability, headache and dizziness. Red blood cells may be damaged resulting in anemia.  Gastritis and injury to the kidneys, liver, male gonads, and central nervous system may also occur.
      Titanium compounds are considered physiologically inert.  There are no reported cases in the literature where titanium as such has caused human intoxication.
    • Additional toxicological information:

    • Swallowing will lead to a strong corrosive effect on mouth and throat and to the danger of perforation of esophagus and stomach.
      May cause harm to the unborn child.
      Possible risk of impaired fertility.
      To the best of our knowledge the acute and chronic toxicity of this substance is not fully known.
      EPA-B2: Probable human carcinogen, sufficient evidence from animal studies; inadequate evidence or no data from epidemiologic studies.
      IARC-2B: Possibly carcinogenic to humans: limited evidence in humans in the absence of sufficient evidence in experimental animals.
      NTP-2: Reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen: limited evidence from studies in humans or sufficient evidence from studies in experimental animals.
      ACGIH A3: Animal carcinogen: Agent is carcinogenic in experimental animals at a relatively high dose, by route(s) of administration, at site(s), of histologic type(s), or by mechanism(s) not considered relevant to worker exposure.  Available epidemologic studies do not confirm an increased risk of cancer in exposed humans.  Available evidence suggests that the agent is not likely to cause cancer in humans except under uncommon or unlikely routes or levels of exposure.
