PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

Ethyl 2 -cyanacrylate polymerises within seconds (inherent property of cyanacrylate-based instant glues). Due to molecule structure (ester) very low hypothetical but non-determinable monomer concentrations are likely to undergo further reactions in water. Therefore the persistence criteria are not fulfilled. The properties of the substance therefore do not meet the specific criteria detailed in Annex XIII and do not allow a direct comparison with all the criteria in Annex XIII but nevertheless indicate that the substance is not likely to have these properties. Consequently, the substance is not considered a PBT/vPvB.

Likely routes of exposure:

Not Applicable
