A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained from residual oils by solvent crystallisation and treated with hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst. It consists predominantly of saturated straight and branched chain hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly greater than C25.
In an acute dermal toxicity study, groups of
five male and five female young adult Sprague-Dawley rats were dermally
exposed to Paraffin wax for 24 hours to approximately 10% of body
surface at a dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight. Animals then were observed
for 14 days.
The test article caused slight skin
irritation reactions in a majority of treated animals which persisted
throughout the study. However, a previous study performed at BIBRA
(Report No.1091(3)/1/93) demonstrated that SX30 is only a mild irritant
and has no corrosive (irreversible) properties when applied to intact
rabbit skin for 4 hours. Based on the absence of mortality, minimal
clinical observations, standard body weight and weight gain, and
necropsy results, the median lethal dose was calculated to be > 2000
mg/kg body weight.
This study received a Klimisch score of one
and is classified as reliable without restrictions because it was
carried out according to OECD TG 402.
