Solutions begin to decompose 800C/1750F.
Conditions to Avoid (Regarding Polymerization): None
HEALTH HAZARDS: Acute Overexposure: Soluble tungsten compounds have the potential to cause systemic effects
involving the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system. Dust or mist may irritate the
eyes, skin and respiratory system. The oral lethal dose of similar tungsten salts is approximately
1000 mg/kg (oral,rats). Laboratory animal experiments show symptoms of anorexia colic,
incoordination of movement, trembling, dyspnea and weight loss. Lithium compounds have been
implicated development of aplastic anemia and may cause dizziness, prostration, kidney damage,
Chronic Overexposure: Central nervous system disturbances.Chemical Listed As a Carcinogen Or
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated By Exposure: No specific condition specified. Inhalation:
Immediately remove victim to fresh air. If victim is not breathing, initiate CPR. Seek
Eye Contact: Immediately flush with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention. Skin Contact: Immediately wash with soap and water. If irritation results, seek medical attention. Ingestion:
Immediately seek medical attention. Call local poison control center. Consult 29 CFR
1910.151 requirements for medical services. PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE: Precautions To Be Taken In Handling And Storage: Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Harmful if
swallowed. Avoid breathing mists or dust. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated space. Store away
from incompatible substances listed in incompatibility section. Other Precautions: Wear personal protective equipment to prevent excessive skin and/or eye Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Released Or Spilled: Wear personal protective equipment.
Clean up the absorbed material and place in a suitable container for disposal. Waste Disposal Methods:This substance is not currently listed as a hazardous waste. Ordinary
disposal measures should be suitable. Observe all federal, state, and local regulations when
disposing of this chemical substance. CONTROL MEASURES: Respiratory Protection: Respiratory protection not generally required under normal use conditions.
If concentrations do not exceed 10 times the PEL, an air purifying respirator approved for dusts,
mists, and fumes will be suitable. In higher concentrations, a greater level of protection is
required. Refer to 29 CFR 1910.134 for guidance. Ventilation Requirements: General exhaust ventilation should be maintained. Local Exhaust: Suggested to control potential decomposition products during heating. Mechanical: General exhaust ventilation is suggested. Protective Gloves: Any type glove to prevent excessive skin contact is suggested. Eye Protection: Safety glasses. Consult 29 CFR 1910.133 for general requirements for eye and face Other Protective Clothing Or Equipment: None specifically indicated. Consult 29 CFR 1910.132
general requirements for personal protective equipment. Work/Hygienic Practices: Wash thoroughly before eating, drinking, smoking, or leaving the work
place. Consult 29 CFR 1910.141 general requirements for sanitation. The information herein is true and accurate to the best of our knowledge.
