Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

The barium hexaferrite was tested for its skin sensitisation potential by means of a guinea pig maximization test (GMPT) as modified by Maurer & Hess. The test method is similar to the conventional GMPT and the necessary modification did not affect the reliability of the study. The study results indicate that the substance is not a skin sensitizer.

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Additional information:

Though no specific information is available at the present,both the acute inhalation toxicity test and the long-term inhalation toxicity test do not document any sensitizing effect.


Migrated from Short description of key information:
