Mortality did not occur at the technically maximum attainable concentration of 1817 mg/m³. Rats exposed to the test item showed clinical signs (labored breathing, irregular breathing, piloerection). Significant changes in incremental body weight gain were found in females on day 1. Neither reduction in body temperature nor changes during the reflex measurement were observed. Necropsy revealed light colored areas and/or few gray areas in the lungs of male and female rats on day 14.

Additional information

In the acute oral toxicity study groups of 5 male and 5 female rats were administered by gavage a single oral dose of 5000 mg/kg bw of the test material Macrolex Rot E2G (CAS no. 6829-22-7). Animals were observed for mortality, clinical signs and body weight for 14 days. A gross pathological examination was done on all animals sacrificed at the end of study. No clinical signs of systemic poisoning were observed and no deaths occurred. The male and female rats sacrificed at the end of the study did not show any noticeable gross pathological findings. The LC50 is > 5000 mg/kg bw.

In the acute inhalation toxicity study one group of 3 male and 3 female rats was nose-only exposed to the solid aerosol of the test material at the actual concentration of 1817 mg/m³ (maximum attainable concentration). Rats exposed to air only under otherwise identical circumstances served as control animals.

Mortality did not occur at the technically maximum attainable concentration of 1817 mg/m³. Rats exposed to the test material showed clinical signs (labored breathing, irregular breathing, piloerection). Significant changes in incremental body weight gain were found in females on day 1. Neither reduction in body temperature nor changes during the reflex measurement were observed. Necropsy revealed light colored areas and/or few gray areas in the lungs of male and female rats on day 14.

In summary, there is evidence of low acute inhalation toxicity in rats after exposure (4h) of aerosolized Macrolex Rot E2G (CAS no. 6829-22-7). The LC50 is > 1817 mg/m³.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In the acute oral toxicity study a LD50 > 5000 mg/kg bw and in the acute inhalation toxicity study a LD50 > 1817 mg/m³ (technically maximum attainable concentration) was found.

According to CLP classification criteria (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008) a classification is not justified.
