COMPONENT INFORMATION:The compositions of individual products in the alloy families or categories listed under 1.1 are given in the product composition tables inAPPENDIX 1. Please refer to the appropriate alloy name or designation.3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION:Description of hazards:As shipped, these complex alloys in massive form have no known toxicological properties other than causing allergic reactions in individualssensitive to the metals contained in the alloys. Nickel, Cobalt, and some forms of Chromium are known skin sensitizers. Nickel and Cobaltalso are classified as suspected carcinogens (EU Category 3). Absent specific test data for the alloy, mixtures (including alloys) that containmore than 1% of a substance are classified in the same manner as that substance.Hazardous fume or dust emissions may be released during remelting, grinding, cutting, or welding. In addition to Nickel and Cobalt,Hexavalent Chromium (a known human inhalation carcinogen - EU Category 2) may be generated during processing activities. If airborneemissions are excessive, inhalation may affect worker health. Further information is given in Section 8 - Exposure Controls / PersonalProtection.In addition, individual products in the above alloy families may contain one or more of the following ingredients, which may be consideredhazardous under the legislation indicated:USA: SARA SECTION 313 SUPPLIER NOTIFICATION: Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act of 1986 and of 40 CFR 372.
