EC number: -
CAS number: 142844-00-6
The substance is an
aluminosilicate wool. Aluminosilicates occur naturally and are
ubiquitous in rocks, soils and sediments and are stable over geological
time. The substance we discuss here is chemically identical, albeit of
different morphology to the naturally occurring materials. It is
inorganic, inert and stable and therefore persistent in the environment.
It is a dense material and so any suspended fibres will settle rapidly
from both air and liquid. There is no intentional release to the
environment. Any dispersal of the substance is limited to manufacturing
and use facilities. Disposal is restricted to hazardous waste landfill
sites(refer to the European list (Decision no 2000/532/CE as modified)
to identify your appropriate European Waste Code (EWC)) . There are no
known routes for biodegradation.
The substance is not
bio-accumulative and shows no evidence of bio-magnification in the food
chain. It is an inert, inorganic substance and therefore the
octanol:water partitioning coefficient cannot be determined.
The substance is classified
under CLP as a 1b carcinogen (by inhalation). It is not genotoxic or a
reproductive toxin (see section 7).
