SECTION 11: TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Acute (Product Specific)

Eye irritation:

Transient, mild to moderate irritation was observed in test animals in a

study with a similar formulation. Classified as slightly to moderately

irritating.

Oral LD

(rat):

>5,000 mg/kg (rat) for a similar formulation.

EPA Toxicity Category IV

Dermal LD

(rabbits):

>2,000 mg/kg (rabbit) for a similar formulation.

EPA Toxicity Category III

Inhalation toxicity:

In a test with an almost identical formulation, the test facility was

unable to generate a sufficiently high enough concentration of

respirable particles due to the non-dusty characteristics of the product.

Animal test not warranted.

Irritation of the skin (rabbits):

Transient, slight or mild irritation noted in a dermal irritation study with

a similar formulation. EPA Toxicity Category IV.

Sensitisation:

In a study with a similar product the reaction to the challenge dose

was slight, but because it was greater than that of the control animals,

it was concluded that the potential to cause skin sensitization exists.

Not expected to have any corrosive properties.

Chronic/Carcinogenicity

No adverse effects known. None of the components are classified as carcinogens.
