Endpoint:
appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
other: visual evaluation
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
August 17, 2011 - January 10, 2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Visually determined by the testing laboratory that also determined physico-chemical properties of the substance.
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
solid
Form:
other: powder with lumps
Colour:
light yellow
Odour:
other: not determined
Substance type:
organic
Conclusions:
The substance is a light yellow powder with lumps but a liquid form is considered for risk assessment purposes as it is always manufactured and handled as an aqueous solution.

Description of key information

The substance is a light yellow powder that is manufactured, marketed and used in aqueous solutions. Value used for the ECETOC TRA calculations: liquid (workers are never exposed to the substance in solid form).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
liquid

Additional information

The substance contains a surfactant part (group of alkyl derivatives), sodium chloride and sodium glycolate (together named as solid content in the dossier) and is manufactured, marketed and used in aqueous solutions (30 -60%). The substance was successfully dried to perform physico-chemical tests and for regulatory requirements.
