Irritant / corrosive response data:
The test substance had no effect upon oedema score at any time point. At the 24 and 48 hour evaluations, one rabbit showed erythema (score 1). All findings were resolved at the 72 hour observation time. All treated skin appeared normal at the 72 hour observation period.
