In 1975, five manufacturers of chromate pigment in Japan were examined in a study of the carcinogenicity of chromates.
These companies were producing lead chromate, zinc chromate, molybdate orange and/or strontium chromate.
The current study covers a cohort of 666 workers involved in the manufacture of chromate pigment for at least 1 year between 1950 and 1975.
The workers were followed up for 15-40 years, until 1989.
Many previous reports have found an excess lung cancer risk among workers involved in the manufacture of chromate pigments and chromate chemicals.
