Test material

Reference
Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Details on test material:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Reaction products of 1,1’-methylenebis(4-isocyanatocyclohexane) and pentaerythritol triacrylate and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate
- Substance type: Clear colourless or slightly yellow, sticky resin
- Physical state: Solid
- Storage condition of test material: At room temperature protected from light


Test system

Amount / concentration applied:
TEST MATERIAL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): Due to the physical properties of the substance Reaction products of 1,1’-methylenebis(4-isocyanatocyclohexane) and pentaerythritol triacrylate and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate was applied directly on top of the skin tissue with a spatula and spread to match the size of the tissue

NEGATIVE CONTOL:
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): 25 µl Phosphate buffered saline

POSITIVE CONTROL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): 25 µl
- Concentration (if solution): 5% (aq) Sodium dodecyl sulphate
Duration of treatment / exposure:
Exposure:15 minutes
Post incubation period: 42 hours
Details on study design:
TEST SITE
- Area of exposure: human epidermis model
- % coverage: 0.38 cm2

REMOVAL OF TEST SUBSTANCE
- Washing (if done): phosphate buffered saline
- Time after start of exposure: 15 minutes

POST INCUBATION PERIOD
- 42 hours

SCORING SYSTEM:
- After a 42 hour incubation period, determination of the cytotoxic (irritancy) effect was performed. Cytotoxicity is expressed as the reduction of mitochondrial dehydrogenase activity measured by formazan production from MTT at the end of the treatment. Cell viability was calculated for each tissue as a percentage of the mean of the negative control tissues.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The in vitro skin irritation test was conducted according to OECD 439 guideline and GLP principles.

The positive and negative controls were within the historical control data.

It is concluded that this test is valid and that Reaction products of 1,1’-methylenebis(4-isocyanatocyclohexane) and pentaerythritol triacrylate and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate is non-irritant in the in vitro skin irritation test.

Executive summary:

Skin irritation is expressed as the remaining cell viability after exposure to the test substance. The relative mean tissue viability obtained after 15 minutes treatment with Reaction products of 1,1’-methylenebis(4-isocyanatocyclohexane) and pentaerythritol triacrylate and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate compared to the negative control tissues was 6%. Since the mean relative tissue viability for Reaction products of 1,1’-methylenebis(4-isocyanatocyclohexane) and pentaerythritol triacrylate and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate was below 50% after 15 minutes treatment Reaction products of 1,1’-methylenebis(4-isocyanatocyclohexane) and pentaerythritol triacrylate and pentaerythritol tetraacrylate is considered to be irritant.
