This substance is used by consumers, in articles, by professional workers (widespread uses), in formulation or re-packing, at industrial sites and in manufacturing.

Consumer Uses

This substance is used in the following products: fuels, washing & cleaning products, biocides (e.g. disinfectants, pest control products) and cosmetics and personal care products.
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: outdoor use as processing aid, outdoor use in close systems with minimal release (e.g. hydraulic liquids in automotive suspension, lubricants in motor oil and break fluids) and outdoor use in long-life materials with high release rate (e.g. tyres, treated wooden products, treated textile and fabric, brake pads in trucks or cars, sanding of buildings (bridges, facades) or vehicles (ships)).

Article service life

Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: industrial abrasion processing with low release rate (e.g. cutting of textile, cutting, machining or grinding of metal).
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: indoor use in long-life materials with low release rate (e.g. flooring, furniture, toys, construction materials, curtains, foot-wear, leather products, paper and cardboard products, electronic equipment) and outdoor use in long-life materials with low release rate (e.g. metal, wooden and plastic construction and building materials).
This substance can be found in products with material based on: fabrics, textiles and apparel (e.g. clothing, mattress, curtains or carpets, textile toys), leather (e.g. gloves, shoes, purses, furniture), paper (e.g. tissues, feminine hygiene products, nappies, books, magazines, wallpaper) and stone, plaster, cement, glass or ceramic (e.g. dishes, pots/pans, food storage containers, construction and isolation material).

Widespread uses by professional workers

This substance is used in the following products: laboratory chemicals, lubricants and greases, metal working fluids, fuels, polymers, washing & cleaning products, textile treatment products and dyes, inks and toners, leather treatment products and paper chemicals and dyes.
This substance is used in the following areas: scientific research and development and building & construction work.
This substance is used for the manufacture of: textile, leather or fur, mineral products (e.g. plasters, cement), fabricated metal products and machinery and vehicles.
Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: in processing aids at industrial sites, in the production of articles and as an intermediate step in further manufacturing of another substance (use of intermediates).
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: outdoor use, indoor use (e.g. machine wash liquids/detergents, automotive care products, paints and coating or adhesives, fragrances and air fresheners) and outdoor use in close systems with minimal release (e.g. hydraulic liquids in automotive suspension, lubricants in motor oil and break fluids).

Formulation or re-packing

This substance is used in the following products: textile treatment products and dyes, inks and toners, leather treatment products, paper chemicals and dyes and polymers.
Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: formulation of mixtures.

Uses at industrial sites

This substance is used in the following products: paper chemicals and dyes, polymers, textile treatment products and dyes, leather treatment products, fuels, laboratory chemicals, pH regulators and water treatment products and extraction agents.
This substance has an industrial use resulting in manufacture of another substance (use of intermediates).
This substance is used for the manufacture of: chemicals, textile, leather or fur and pulp, paper and paper products.
Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: in processing aids at industrial sites, in the production of articles, as an intermediate step in further manufacturing of another substance (use of intermediates), for thermoplastic manufacture, as processing aid and of substances in closed systems with minimal release.
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: outdoor use as processing aid.

Manufacture

Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: manufacturing of the substance.
