Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not a relevant process for tungsten carbide, as in principle, water acts as an oxidizing agent with tungsten compounds (Lassner and Schubert, 1999). The behavior of the test substance in water is more accurately examined through the Transformation/Dissolution testing protocol (see section 4.8).
