Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance to section 2 of REACH Annex XI, skin and eye irritation studies does not need to be conducted as the substance is a gas. The gaseous nature of vinyliden fluoride precludes the conductance of conventional skin and eye irritation studies in animals. Results of other toxicity studies indicate that VDF is not significantly irritant to skin, eyes or respiratory tract.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The gaseous nature of vinylidene fluoride precludes the conduct of conventional skin and eye irritation tests in animals. Therefore, classification for skin and eye irritation is not applicable according to EU Directive 67/548/EEC andEU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
