SIKA Hardener LH was tested for skin irritation properties according to EU method B.5 and OECD guideline 405 and did not show skin irritation properties. The test on eye irritation was waived for animal welfare reasons. Based on irritating/corrosive properties of diamines, SIKA Hardener LH was considered irritating to eyes. In analogy with the hydrolysis product hexamethlyendiamine the substance was classified as respiratory irritant.
Sika Hardener LH (VP) was tested for skin irritation properties in a study with albino New Zealand White rabbits. The test material was applied to the intact skin of rabbits as a single dose of 0.5 mL. The irritation symptoms were examined at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after the patch removal. In one animal, very slight erythema were recorded 24 and 48 hours after patch removal (score 1), on the treated skin surface. All animals were free of irritation symptoms (erythema and oedeme) 72 hours after patch removal. Thus, the study was terminated after 72 hours.
The animals' individual mean scores (considering readings at 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal) for erythema and oedema were 0.66. 0.00 and 0.00 and 0.00, 0.00 and 0.00 respectively. The observed symptoms were evaluated as fully reversible alterations.
No skin irritation properties were found in the test with Sika Hardener LH.
The acute eye irritation study of the test item 2,2-Dimethyl-3-lauroyloxy-propanal was performed in three New Zealand White rabbits. The irritation effect of the test item was evaluated according to the Draize method (OECD No.: 405, 2002). The test item was placed into the conjunctival sac of the left eye of each animal. The untreated right eye served as control. The treated eyes of the test animals were not washed out following the instillation of 0.1 mL of the test item, which was administered in pure state, in a single dose. The eyes were examined at 1, 24, 48, and 72 hours after the application. One hour after the single application of 2,2-Dimethyl-3-lauroyloxy-propanal into the eyes of the rabbits slight redness and moderately or severely increased discharge were observed in the eyes of the test animals. Chemosis, corneal and iris alterations were not found during the study. 24 hours after treatment in two animals slight redness was observed and in one case slightly increased discharge was noted. One animal became fully symptom-free by this time. 48 hours after the treatment every animal was symptom-free. 72 hours after the treatment the study was terminated, since no primary irritation symptoms occurred. The general state and the behaviour of animals were normal during the whole study. In conclusion, the test item 2,2-Dimethyl-3-lauroyloxy-propanal, applied to the rabbits' eye mucosa, caused irritant effects, which can be evaluated as fully reversible alterations within 48 h. According to the GHS criteria for classification and labelling requirements for dangerous substances and preparations the test item does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for eye irritation.
SIKA Hardener LH was tested for skin irritation properties according to EU method B.4 and OECD guideline 404. In a study with albino New Zealand White rabbits test material was applied to the intact skin as a single dose of 0.5 mL. Irritation symptoms were examined at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal. In one animal, very slight erythema were recorded 24 and 48 hours after patch removal (score 1), on the treated skin surface. All animals were free of irritation symptoms (erythema and oedeme) 72 hours after patch removal. Thus, the study was terminated after 72 hours. The animals' individual mean scores (considering readings at 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal) for erythema and oedema were 0.66. 0.00 and 0.00 and 0.00, 0.00 and 0.00 respectively. The observed symptoms were evaluated as fully reversible alterations. SIKA Hardener LH was not considered to be irritating to skin.
SIKA Hardener LH is the reaction product of the two substances 2,2-Dimethyl-3-lauroyloxy-propanal (CAS no. 102985-93-3, EINECS no. 468-880-2) and Hexamethylenediamine (CAS no. 124-09-4, EINECS No. 204-679-6). Upon contact with water SIKA Hardener LH rapidly hydrolyses, re-forming the original reactants as degradation products, i.e. the aldehyde and amine component. As agreed with the German Authorities (Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin, BAuA, see IUCLID section 13) the test on eye irritation was waived for animal welfare reasons. Instead, available data for hydrolytic degradation products 2,2-Dimethyl-3-lauroyloxy-propanal and Hexamethlendiamine are provided. Based on irritating/corrosive properties of diamines SIKA Hardener LH was considered irritanting to eyes. SIKA Hardener LH hydrolysis products reveal the following eye irritating properties:
Dimethyl-3-lauroyloxy-propanal: not irritating to eyes
The substance SIKA Hardener LH hydrolyses very fast into Dodecanoic acid, 2,2-dimethyl-3-oxopropyl ester (“Aldehyde L”, CAS 102985-93-3, EC 468-880-2) and Hexamethylenediamine (“HMD”,CAS 124-09-4, EC 204-679-6). Whereas Aldehyde L is absolutely uncritical with regard to local irritation (see disseminated dossier published on the ECHA homepage, submitted by Incorez Ltd.), hexamethylendiamine is the hydrolysis product of concern regarding respiratory irritation (see disseminated dossier of hexamethyldiamine, published on the ECHA homepage). In analogy with this hydrolysis product the substance SIKA Hardener LH is classified as STOT SE cat. 3 according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP).
Based on data available on irritation/corrosion properties, SIKA Hardener LH was classified for eye irritation/corrosion cat. 1 (H318: causes serious eye damage) and as STOT SE cat. 3 (H335: May cause respiratory irritation) according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP).
