Description of key information

Additional information

Aluminatesilicate, if released into the environment, is expected to combine indistinguishably with the soil or sediment due to its similarity with inorganic soil/sediment matter and will be subjected to natural processes under environmental conditions (cation exchange, dissolution, sedimentation). Due to low water solubility and extremely low vapour pressure, it is expected to distribute mainly into soils and sediments, weakly into water and probably not at all into the air.

Besides, the study on adsorption/desorption does not need to be performed, since the substance is an important adsorbent with a wide range of use.
