Administrative data

Endpoint:
surface tension
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because based on structure, surface activity is not expected or cannot be predicted
the study does not need to be conducted because surface activity is not a desired property of the material
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with column 2 of REACh Annex VII, the study needs only to be conducted if based on structure, surface activity is expected or can be predicted.
The present substance is not intended to be used as a surfactant (i.e. not a desired property), and major constituents (cyclic hydrocarbons) do not contain groups (such as distinct polar and non-polar parts, here no hydrophilic part) indicating that it will have surface-active properties in solution. Therefore, the study is deemed unnecessary.
Moreover, most of constituents have a water solubility < 1 mg/L (at 25°C), which supports that the test does not need to be conducted.
