PBT assessment

Administrative data

PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

PhECA polymerises within seconds (inherent property of PhECA based instant glues). Due to molecule structure (ester) very low hypothetical but non-determinable monomer concentrations are likely to undergo further reactions in water, e.g. hydolyse to phenylethanol and cyanoacrylic acid. Therfore the persistence criteria is not fulfilled. The properties of the substance therefore do not meet the specific criteria detailed in Annex XIII or do not allow a direct comparison with all the criteria in Annex XIII but nevertheless indicate that the substance is not likely to have these properties and, consequently, that the substance is not considered a PBT/vPvB.
