Warning! According to the harmonised classification and labelling (CLP00) approved by the European Union, this substance is harmful if swallowed.

Additionally, the classification provided by companies to ECHA in REACH registrations identifies that this substance is a flammable liquid and vapour, is harmful in contact with skin and causes serious eye irritation.

This substance is manufactured and/or imported in the European Economic Area in 10 000 - 100 000 tonnes per year.

This substance is used by consumers, in articles, by professional workers (widespread uses), in formulation or re-packing, at industrial sites and in manufacturing.

This substance is used by consumers, in articles, by professional workers (widespread uses), in formulation or re-packing, at industrial sites and in manufacturing.

Consumer Uses

This substance is used in the following products: plant protection products, biocides (e.g. disinfectants, pest control products), coating products, anti-freeze products, lubricants and greases, polishes and waxes, fillers, putties, plasters, modelling clay and finger paints.
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: indoor use (e.g. machine wash liquids/detergents, automotive care products, paints and coating or adhesives, fragrances and air fresheners) and outdoor use.

Article service life

Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: in processing aids at industrial sites, in the production of articles and industrial abrasion processing with low release rate (e.g. cutting of textile, cutting, machining or grinding of metal).
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: outdoor use, indoor use (e.g. machine wash liquids/detergents, automotive care products, paints and coating or adhesives, fragrances and air fresheners), outdoor use in long-life materials with low release rate (e.g. metal, wooden and plastic construction and building materials) and indoor use in long-life materials with low release rate (e.g. flooring, furniture, toys, construction materials, curtains, foot-wear, leather products, paper and cardboard products, electronic equipment).
This substance can be found in products with material based on: stone, plaster, cement, glass or ceramic (e.g. dishes, pots/pans, food storage containers, construction and isolation material), plastic (e.g. food packaging and storage, toys, mobile phones), metal (e.g. cutlery, pots, toys, jewellery), paper (e.g. tissues, feminine hygiene products, nappies, books, magazines, wallpaper), wood (e.g. floors, furniture, toys) and fabrics, textiles and apparel (e.g. clothing, mattress, curtains or carpets, textile toys).

This substance is used in the following areas: agriculture, forestry and fishing and building & construction work.
This substance is used for the manufacture of: mineral products (e.g. plasters, cement), machinery and vehicles, furniture and chemicals.
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: indoor use (e.g. machine wash liquids/detergents, automotive care products, paints and coating or adhesives, fragrances and air fresheners) and outdoor use.

Formulation or re-packing

This substance is used in the following products: pH regulators and water treatment products and laboratory chemicals.
This substance has an industrial use resulting in manufacture of another substance (use of intermediates).
Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: formulation of mixtures, formulation in materials, as an intermediate step in further manufacturing of another substance (use of intermediates), manufacturing of the substance, in processing aids at industrial sites, in the production of articles, as processing aid, for thermoplastic manufacture, as processing aid and of substances in closed systems with minimal release.

Uses at industrial sites

This substance is used in the following products: fillers, putties, plasters, modelling clay, pH regulators and water treatment products, coating products, adhesives and sealants, non-metal-surface treatment products and lubricants and greases.
This substance is used in the following areas: building & construction work and mining.
This substance is used for the manufacture of: chemicals, mineral products (e.g. plasters, cement), textile, leather or fur, pulp, paper and paper products, machinery and vehicles and furniture.
Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: in processing aids at industrial sites, in the production of articles, as an intermediate step in further manufacturing of another substance (use of intermediates), as processing aid, formulation of mixtures and formulation in materials.
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: outdoor use and indoor use (e.g. machine wash liquids/detergents, automotive care products, paints and coating or adhesives, fragrances and air fresheners).

Manufacture

Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: manufacturing of the substance, formulation of mixtures, formulation in materials, in processing aids at industrial sites, in the production of articles, as an intermediate step in further manufacturing of another substance (use of intermediates), as processing aid, for thermoplastic manufacture, as processing aid and of substances in closed systems with minimal release.
