Toxicological Info
Acute toxicity
Inhalation
Irritant to mucous membranes
Skin
Irritant to skin; no sensitizing efects known.
Eyes
Irritating Effect
Medical Symptoms
Subacute to chronic toxicity: Bismuth and bismuth compounds are often poorly absorbed. Should absorption occur, however, exposure may cause loss of appetite, headache, skin rash, exodermatitis, kidney injury and jaundice. Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause a bismuth line or black spots on the gums, foul breath and salivation. Fluorides may cause salivation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, followed by weakness, tremors, shallow respiration, convulsions and coma. May cause brain and kidney damage. Chronic fluoride poisoning can cause severe bone changes, loss of weight, anorexia, anemia and dental defects. Subacute to chronic toxicity: Corrosive materials are acutely destructive to the respiratory tract, eyes, skin and digestive tract. Eye contact may result in permanent damage and complete vision loss. Inhalation may result in respiratory effects such as inflammation, edema, and chemical pneumonitis. May cause coughing, wheezing, laryngitis, shortness of breath, headache, nausea and vomiting. Ingestion may cause damage to the mouth, throat and esophagus. May cause skin burns or irritation depending on the severity of the exposure. Additional toxicological information: To the best of our knowledge the acute and chronic toxicity of this substance is not fully known. IARC-3: Not classifiable as to carcinogenicity to humans. ACGIH A4: Not classifiable as a human carcinogen: Inadequate data on which to classify the agent in terms of it's carcinogenicity in humans and/or animals
