IARC: YES
Effects of Exposure: UNDER NORMAL HANDLING CONDITIONS THE SOLID ALLOY PRESENTS
  NO SIGNIFICANT HEALTH HAZARDS. PROCESSING OF THE ALLOY BY DUST OR FUME
  PRODUCING OPERATION (GRINDING, BUFFING, HEATING, WELDING, ETC) MAY RESULT IN
  THE POTENTIAL FOR EXPOSURE TO AIRB ORNE METAL PARTICULATES OR FUME. (FOR
  ACUTE/CHRONIC/SYMPTOMS BY INGREDIENT PER MSDS, CALL EITHER THE MANUFACTURER
  FOR AN ORIGINAL MSDS OR CALL DLA- AT 804-279-4371)
Explanation Of Carcinogenicity: ANTIMONY TRIOXIDE, BERYLLIUM, CADMIUM, CHROMIUM
  (IARC), COBALT-CHROMIUM ALLOY, LEAD AND NICKEL HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS
  POTENTIAL HUMAN CARCINOGENS.
Signs And Symptions Of Overexposure: POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS FROM EXPOSURE TO THE
  VARIOUS CONSTIUENTS OF THE ALLOY: METALLIC TATSE, VOMITING, COLIC, LOSS OF
  APPETITE/WEIGHT,DIARRHEA, DERMATITIS, GRANULOMATOUS LESIONS ON
  SKIN/LIVER/KIDNEYS/SPLEEN/LYMPH NODES, NON-PRODUCTIVE COUGH, DI FFICULTY
  BREATHING, SORE/DRY THROAT, CHEST PAIN, HEADACHE, DIZZINESS, UPPER
  RESPIRATORY TRACT IRRITATION, METAL FUME FEVER(CHILLS, FEVER, COUGH, STOMACH
  PAIN, HEADACHE, NAUSEA, VOMITING, METALLIC TASTE, PAINS IN MUSCLES/JOINTS).
Medical Cond Aggravated By Exposure: PREGNANCY, RESPIRATORY INFECTION,
  THYROTOXICOSIS.
First Aid: EYE: FLUSH WELL WITH RUNNING WATER TO REMOVE PARTICULATE. GET
  MEDICAL  ATTENTION. SKIN: VACUUM OFF EXCESS DUST. WASH WELL WITH SOAP AND
  WATER. INHALATION: REMOVE TO FRESH AIR. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION. INGESTION:
  SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IF LARG E QUANTITIES OF MATERIAL HAVE BEEN INGESTED.
