**** SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION ****
Primary irritant effect:

on the eye: Powder: irritant effect
Sensitization: Sensitization possible through skin contact.
Other information (about experimental toxicology):
Tumorigenic 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.
Additional toxicological information:
the best of our knowledge the acute and chronic toxicity of this substance is
not fully known.
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-2: 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 components in this product.
