Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Acute Toxicity-Oral LD50 > 5000 mg/kg in rats (OECD TG 401)
Acute Toxicity-Dermal LD50 > 5000 mg/kg in rabbits (OECD TG 402)
Acute Toxicity-Inhalation LC50 > 5000 mg/m3 (OECD TG 403)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The acute toxicity of C9-C14 aliphatic, < 2% aromatic hydrocarbon fluids has been fully evaluated.  All of the animal studies were performed in a manner similar or equivalent to currently established OECD guidelines.  Based on these data, C9-C14 aliphatic, < 2% aromatic hydrocarbons have a low order of acute toxicity by the oral, dermal, and inhalation routes of exposure.

Justification for classification or non-classification

C9-C14 aliphatic, < 2% aromatic hydrocarbons is minimally toxic via ingestion where the LD50 is >5000 mg/kg, via dermal exposure where the LD50 is >5000mg/kg, and by inhalation where the LC50 > 5000 mg/m3.  These findings do not warrant classification of C9-C14 aliphatic, < 2% aromatic hydrocarbons under the new Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP) do not warrant classification under the Directive 67/548/EEC for dangerous substances and Directive 1999/45/EC for preparations (DSD/DPD). C9-C14 aliphatic, < 2% aromatic hydrocarbons are classified under EU CLP guidelines as a Category 1 aspiration hazard based on its physical and chemical properties (hydrocarbon fluid, viscosity ≤ 20.5 mm2/s) and as an R65 aspiration hazard under the EU DSD/DPD.
