Additional information

The test substance, Formaldehyde, polymer with 1,3 -benzenedimethanamine and phenol demonstrated limited potential to biodegrade in an O.E.C.D. test guideline no. 301D Closed Bottle study. The maximum level of biodegradation observed under the conditions of the study was approximately 20%. The experimental Log Koc of 1.72 determined in an O.E.C.D. 121 HPLC method study suggests that the test substance has limited potential to adsorb to soil and sewage sludge. Based upon the findings of the Chemical Safety Assessment the potential for the substance to bioaccumulate in aquatic species is low.
