Tungsten carbide (WC) particles can enter the body via breathing of air-borne tungsten carbide (WC) particles. Incorporation is followed by an enhanced level of tungsten in the blood and in the urine.


Results obtained by in vitro assays indicate an uptake of nano-sized WC particles into lung cells. WC nanoparticles were never detected in the cell nuclei [1] .
