General Information

Name:
Zirconium dichloride oxide
Implementation:
EU
Type of classification:
self-classification
Remarks:

Irritation/corrosion:

Zirconium dichoride oxide releases hydrogen chloride in contact with water leading to a pH < 2. It is therefore proposed to follow the classification of hydrogen chloride dissolved in water (hydrochloric acid) on corrosion/irritation. Zirconium dichloride oxide should thus be classified as Skin corrosive category 1B (H314) - GHS05, according to Annex 6 of the CLP regulation for harmonised classification of hydrochloric acid.

As the substance is classified as corrosive to the skin category 1B, it should be classified as Eye damage category 1 according to the criteria of the CLP Regulation.

In addition, the release of hydrogen chloride with moisture or heating will provide a corrosive environment in and around the material. Zirconium dichloride oxide is therefore concluded in daily handling and use not to be compatible with metals and should thus be classified as corrosive to metals, Met. Corr. 1 (H290).
