ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- There is very limited data following human exposure to tungsten metal. Ingestion of ethanol reportedly contaminated with tungsten has been associated with the development of nausea and vomiting, seizures, metabolic acidosis, renal failure, rhabdomyolysis, and coma.
- Tungsten metal dust is an eye, skin, and respiratory irritant.
- Chronic occupational exposure to hard metals involving cemented tungsten carbide (a mixture containing cobalt, used as a binding agent, and tungsten carbide) may result in lung fibrosis and is attributed to exposure to the cobalt. Please refer to the COBALT management for further information.
- In animals, other reported effects following exposure to tungsten include anorexia, colic, weight loss, incoordination, trembling, and dermatitis.
