Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The chemical safety assessment according to REACH Annex I indicates that it is not necessary to conduct the soil simulation test.

Simulation test (soil) is not considered necessary because:

•        The substance is used under highly controlled conditions and, therefore, exposure of the terrestrial environment is low.

•          The substance hydrolyses rapidly to silanetriol and ethanol. Silanetriol is an inorganic substance which is expected to enter natural biogeochemical cycles;ethanol is known to biodegrade rapidly.
