Description of key information

Additional information

The substance Amber Core (P#620) is a clear liquid at ambient temperature, slighltly soluble in water, with no significant vapour pressure. It is surface active, and its potential for bioaccumulation cannot be excluded. No dissociation is anticipated, in particular under environmental conditions.

It is not considered as hazardous with regard to physical hazards (flammability, explosivity, oxidising properties).
