Description of key information

Modified Small Vinyl Ester is a highly viscous prepolymer, which is placed on the market as an approximately 50% solution in a reactive diluent. Modified Small Vinyl Ester will polymerise to an insoluble polymer with very low bioavailability in water. Modified Small Vinyl Ester is unlikely to reach water. Thus, direct and indirect exposure of water is judged to be unlikely. Bioaccumulation in aqueous species is unlikely. See the CSA for further details.
