V HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION
Effects of Exposure:
To the best of our knowledge the chemical, physical and toxicological properties of nickel titanate have not been thoroughly
investigated and recorded.
Nickel is a confirmed carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic, neoplastigenic, tumorigenic and teratogenic data. Poison
by ingestion, intratracheal intraperitoneal, subcutaneous and intravenous routes. An experimental teratogen. Ingestion of soluble salts
causes nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Hypersensitivity to nickel is common and can cause allergic contact dermatitis, pulmonary
asthma, conjunctivitis and inflammatory reactions around nickel containing medical implants and prosthesis.
Titanium is generally considered to be physiologically inert. There are no reported cases in the literature where titanium as
such has cause human intoxication. The dusts of titanium or most titanium compounds such as titanium oxide may be placed in the
Inhalation: May cause irritation to the upper respiratory tract, mucous membranes, nasal cavities and pulmonary asthma attacks.
Ingestion: Large doses may cause intestinal disorders, convulsions and asphyxia.
Skin: May cause irritation.
Eye: May cause irritation.
Inhalation: Prolonged or repeated inhalation may cause pneomitis.
Ingestion: May cause nickel toxicity.
Skin: May sensitize the skin (nickel itch). May cause allergic dermatitis, eczematous dermatitis and may be accompanied a week
later with superficial skin ulcers, which may discharge and become crusted.
Eye: May cause conjunctivitis.
Routes of Entry: Inhalation, ingestion, skin and eyes.
Target Organs: May affect the nasal cavities, lungs and skin.
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Pre-existing respiratory disorders, pulmonary functions, asthma and skin
Carcinogenicity: NTP: Yes IARC: Yes OSHA: Yes
EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES:
INHALATION: Remove victim to fresh air, keep warm and quiet, give oxygen if breathing is difficult and seek medical attention if
INGESTION: Give 1-2 glasses of milk or water and induce vomiting, seek medical attention if symptoms persist. Never induce
vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing, brush material off skin, wash affected area with mild soap and water. Seek medical attention
if symptoms persist.
EYE: Flush eyes with lukewarm water, lifting upper and lower eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if symptoms
VI REACTIVITY DATA

VII SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
Steps to Be Taken in Case Material is Released: Wear appropriate respiratory and protective equipment specified in Section VIII.
Isolate spill area and provide ventilation. Vacuum up spill using a high efficiency particulate absolute (HEPA) air filter and place in a
closed container for proper disposal. Take care not to raise dust.
Waste Disposal Method: Dispose of in accordance with Federal, State and Local regulations.
VIII SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
Respiratory Protection: NIOSH approved dust-mist-vapor cartridge respirator.
Ventilation: Use local exhaust to maintain concentration at or below the PEL, TLV. General exhaust is recommended.
Protective Gloves: Rubber gloves Eye Protection: Safety glasses
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment: Protective gear suitable to prevent contamination.
IX SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storage: Store in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry area. Wash thoroughly after
Work/Hygienic/Maintenance Practices: Implement engineering and work practice controls to reduce and maintain concentration of
exposure at low levels. Use good housekeeping and sanitation practices. Do not use tobacco or food in work area. Wash thoroughly
before eating and smoking. Do not blow dust clothing or skin compressed air.
Some of the chemicals listed herein are research or experimental substances which may be toxic, as defined by various
governmental regulations. In accordance with Environmental Protection Agency regulations and the Toxic Substance Control Act
(TSCA), these materials should only be handled by, or under the direct supervision of a 鈥渢echnically qualified individual鈥?, as defined
in 40 CFR 710.2(aa).
