Additional information

Conclusion on classification

Short-term toxicity tests for fish, Daphnia and algae are available for Cashmeran. The EC50 and LC50 value are between 1 and 10 mg/l. Therefore, based on the current data, Cashmeran needs to be classified as toxic to aquatic life.

Cashmeran is not readily biodegradable and therefore also needs to be classified as a chronic hazard to the environment.

According to Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD), the classification is R51/53. The corresponding classification according to Regulation 1272/2008/EC (CLP) is Aquatic Chronic 2.
