Additional information

Paraffin waxes and Hydrocarbon waxes (C14-17), chloro, sulfochlorinated, low sulphonated, saponified

is a UVCB substance readily biodegradable (Noè CH-333/2012) with a predicted BCF (VEGA Qsar) 135 L/kg. The preferred compartement based on solubility and Kow is water, low adsorption to soil/organic content is expected based on Koc. Considering these data and the intended uses of Paraffin oils, chlorosulfonated, saponified, a relevant exposure of terrestrial organisms to the test substance is unlikely. Tests in terrestrial organisms were therefore considered not to be necessary.
