This substance is manufactured and/or imported in the European Economic Area in 1 000 - 10 000 tonnes per year.

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

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: adhesives and sealants, metals, coating products, fillers, putties, plasters, modelling clay, metal surface treatment products, non-metal-surface treatment products, inks and toners, pH regulators and water treatment products, laboratory chemicals, paper chemicals and dyes, polishes and waxes, polymers, semiconductors, textile treatment products and dyes, washing & cleaning products, welding & soldering products and cosmetics and personal care products.
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: indoor use (e.g. machine wash liquids/detergents, automotive care products, paints and coating or adhesives, fragrances and air fresheners) and outdoor use.

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: outdoor use in long-life materials with low release rate (e.g. metal, wooden and plastic construction and building materials), 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 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)).
This substance can be found in complex articles, with no release intended: machinery, mechanical appliances and electrical/electronic products (e.g. computers, cameras, lamps, refrigerators, washing machines), vehicles and electrical batteries and accumulators.
This substance can be found in products with material based on: stone, plaster, cement, glass or ceramic (e.g. dishes, pots/pans, food storage containers, construction and isolation material), metal (e.g. cutlery, pots, toys, jewellery) and plastic (e.g. food packaging and storage, toys, mobile phones).

Widespread uses by professional workers

This substance is used in the following products: coating products, adhesives and sealants, metals, fillers, putties, plasters, modelling clay, metal surface treatment products, non-metal-surface treatment products, inks and toners, pH regulators and water treatment products, paper chemicals and dyes, polishes and waxes, polymers, semiconductors, textile treatment products and dyes, washing & cleaning products, cosmetics and personal care products and welding & soldering products.
This substance is used in the following areas: building & construction work, municipal supply (e.g. electricity, steam, gas, water) and sewage treatment, health services, formulation of mixtures and/or re-packaging and scientific research and development.
Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: outdoor use and indoor use (e.g. machine wash liquids/detergents, automotive care products, paints and coating or adhesives, fragrances and air fresheners).

Formulation or re-packing

This substance is used in the following products: adsorbents.
Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: formulation of mixtures and formulation in materials.

Uses at industrial sites

This substance is used in the following products: metals, non-metal-surface treatment products, semiconductors, laboratory chemicals, metal surface treatment products, coating products, pH regulators and water treatment products, adhesives and sealants, fillers, putties, plasters, modelling clay, inks and toners, paper chemicals and dyes, polishes and waxes, polymers, textile treatment products and dyes, washing & cleaning products and cosmetics and personal care products.
This substance is used in the following areas: formulation of mixtures and/or re-packaging, printing and recorded media reproduction, building & construction work, scientific research and development and municipal supply (e.g. electricity, steam, gas, water) and sewage treatment.
This substance is used for the manufacture of: chemicals, plastic products, fabricated metal products, electrical, electronic and optical equipment and mineral products (e.g. plasters, cement).
Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: in the production of articles, as processing aid, in processing aids at industrial sites, as an intermediate step in further manufacturing of another substance (use of intermediates) and of substances in closed systems with minimal release.

Manufacture

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