GHS

General Information

Name:
Self-classification for hexamethyleneimine
Implementation:
EU
Remarks:

Hexamethyleneimine (HMI), CASRN: 111-49-9, is expected to be slightly toxic, corrosive to skin, corrosive to eyes, may irritate the respiratory system and cause skin sensitization. While there is agreement among the national classifications for flammability, differences exist with regards to irritation, corrosivity properties, and acute toxicity. An assessment of the data presented in this report resulted in self-classification using UN GHS classification criteria.
