Description of key information

In contact with water the ureido methacrylate will hydrolyse slowly (EPIWIN calculation).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life for hydrolysis:
51.57 yr
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

Hydrolysis of ureido methacrylate is not expected under relevant environmental conditions. The substance is expected to be stable at neutral and acidic conditions. A calculation using HYDROWIN v2.00 revealed hydrolytic stability in a range of several years (SRC HYDROWIN v2.00).

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VIII, the test on hydrolysis (required in section 9.2.2) was waived, as the substance is ultimatively biodegradable.
