Description of key information

Modified Small Vinyl Ester is a slightly water soluble, highly viscous prepolymer which is placed on the market as an approximately 50% solution in an reactive diluent for industrial use only. When exposed to light, Modified Small Vinyl Ester will polymerise and bind all Modified Small Vinyl Ester and most of the reactive diluent covalently in an extremely stable and highly water insoluble polymer with very low bioavailability in soil. Modified Small Vinyl Ester is unlikely to reach soil, thus direct and indirect exposure of terrestrial macroorganisms is unlikely. See the CSA for further details.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Testing is waived in accordance with REACH Annex IX, section 9.4 column 2, because Modified Small Vinyl Ester is a slightly water soluble, highly viscous prepolymer which is placed on the market as an approximately 50% solution in an reactive diluent for industrial use only. When exposed to light, Modified Small Vinyl Ester will polymerise and bind all Modified Small Vinyl Ester and most of the reactive diluent covalently in an extremely stable and highly water insoluble polymer with very low bioavailability in soil. Modified Small Vinyl Ester is unlikely to reach soil, thus direct and indirect exposure of terrestrial macroorganisms is unlikely. See the CSA for further details.
