Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (sensitising)
Additional information:

A Buehler test in guinea pigs revealed a skin sensitising potential of octadecyl isocyanate (0.1% induction and challenge conc., >= 70 % incidence of sensitisation) according to a method similar to OECD TG 406 (Fritz 1989).

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Additional information:

No data available.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Skin sensitisation

Not classified under Annex I of Directive 67/548/EEC or Annex VI-1 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. Deviating from that a skin sensitising potential in guinea pigs detected in a Buehler test leads to the following classification according to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008: Category 1 (H317: May cause an allergic skin reaction).

Respiratory sensitisation

Not classified under Annex I of Directive 67/548/EEC or Annex VI-1 of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. Deviating from that a self classification according to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 with Category 1 (H334: May cause allergy or asthma symptoms or breathing difficulties if inhaled) is recommended since isocyanates are known as respiratory sensitisers.
