Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
All animals showed slight to well-defined erythema, and two animals after 1 resp. 24 hours slight edema. All animals were free of symptoms after 6 - 8 days.
1,2,4-Benzenetricarboxylic acid, mixed decyl and octyl triesters showed a slightly irritant effect on the skin of the test animals with a primary dermal irritation index (PDII) of 1.67/8. The average scores were as follows: Erythema: 1.56, Edema: 0.11
Executive summary:

To test the acute skin irritant effect, 1,2,4-Benzenetricarboxylic acid, mixed decyl and octyl triesters was applied to shaven dorsal skin of rabbits. The product was administered undiluted, and the time of exposure in the patch test was 4 hours. The test was carried out in accordance with OECD guideline 404 (12 May 1981).

The test substance showed a slightly irritating effect (primary dermal irritation index (PDII): 1.67) on the skin of male rabbits. Mean Irritation scores derived from the respectice erythema and edema scores for the 24, 48 and 72 hours observations were 1.56 (erythema) and 0.11 (edema).
