Description of key information

There are two studies each for eye and skin corrosion. The significant difference between the studies was the washing/not washing of the skin or eyeafter the initial exposition period. The result was, that in case of fully removal of the testsubstance by suitable washing only slight and fully reversible symptoms were observed, whereas in the other case the stronger irritation or corrosion was observed. In both cases the symptoms where more severe on skin than in eye. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (irritating)

Eye irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Additional information

Effects on skin irritation/corrosion: irritating

Justification for classification or non-classification

Skin: If the substance was not readily washed away after initial exposition, corrosion was observed. If washed with PEG/Water only slightly irritating effects where observed. Therefore a classification as irritating seems to be sufficient.

Eye: The classification is based on the only slight irritating potential of the substance, esp. in case of removing the substance after initial exposition period. The symptoms are reversible. This seems to be not sufficient for classification.
