Uses at industrial sites

Registration/ Notification status for the use:
use registered according to REACH Article 10; total tonnage manufactured/imported >=10tonnes/year per registrant
Contributing activity / technique for the environment
Name of activity / technique:
ERC6b : the substance is melted in melted alloy, producing fumes (the downstream user may have ventilation and air filters on his site). The solid part of the reacted product is collected and recycled by a specialized company. No release into water.
Environmental release category (ERC):
ERC6b: Use of reactive processing aid at industrial site (no inclusion into or onto article)
Contributing activity / technique for workers
Name of activity / technique:
PROC22, PROC23, PROC 26: the product is spread on melted metal (by worker with a tool or by automatic device). Possible presence of air extraction above the furnace. After the reaction, the product is skimmed off the metal bath, let cool down to ambient temperature and this dross is packaged, in order to be recycled by a specialised company. The worked usually uses gloves but not necessarily masks. Concentration of sodium fluosilicate in the final product : below 15%.
Process category (PROC):
PROC 22: Potentially closed processing operations with minerals/metals at elevated temperature. Industrial setting
PROC 23: Open processing and transfer operations with minerals/metals at elevated temperature
PROC 26: Handling of solid inorganic substances at ambient temperature
Substance supplied to that use in form of:
in a mixture
Subsequent service life relevant for this use:
no
Insignificant exposure via the following route:
oral
dermal
eye
inhalatory
