Azo zinc complex pigment – melamine compound is an unreactive, odorless, brown solid (powder) with a molecular mass of 615.79 g/mol. Using the modified Grain method, the vapor pressure is estimated to be 2.83E-14 Pa at 25 °C. No melting point and no boiling point could be detected up to 300°C. Endothermic reactions were detected indicated by evaporation and/ or decomposition with evolution of gas. According to OECD guideline 110, method B, the particle size distribution of zinc, 5,5'-azobis-2,4,6(1H,3H,5H)-pyrimidinetrione complexes and melamine was determined by scanning electron microscopy method for the sieved fraction (< 100 µm, 14.22 % of total sample) and presented on the basis of calculated mass fractions. The median diameter was 5.33 µm with two main fractions of 6.87 and 92.66 % distributing in the range of 4 -100 µm. In addition, the compound is nearly insoluble (solubility in water: 0.052 mg/l) and the log Pow is estimated to be -3.15.

No compound related adverse effects are reported in a guideline compliant sub-acute toxicity study up to the limit dose of 1000 mg/kg bw/day and, consequently, a DNEL is not required.

Since the compound is a solid, exposure above the general occupational dust value of 10 mg/m³ should be regarded.
