Brief Profile

The Brief Profile summarizes the non-confidential data on substances as it is held in the databases of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), including data provided by third parties. The Brief Profile is automatically generated; note that it does not currently distinguish between harmonised classification and minimum classification; information requirements under different legislative frameworks may therefore not be fully up to date or complete. For accuracy reasons, substance manufacturers and imports have the responsibility to consult official sources, e.g. the electronic edition of the Official Journal of the European Union.
This Brief Profile is covered by the ECHA Legal Notice.

About this substance

This substance is registered under the REACH Regulation and is manufactured in and / or imported to the European Economic Area, at ≥ 1 to < 10 tonnes per annum.

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

ECHA has no public registered data indicating whether or in which chemical products the substance might be used.

ECHA has no public registered data on the routes by which this substance is most likely to be released to the environment.

This substance is used in the following activities or processes at workplace: hot work operations with metals (e.g. welding, soldering, gouging, brazing, flame cutting), high energy work-up of substances bound in materials or articles (e.g. hot rolling/forming, grinding, mechanical cutting, drilling or sanding), potentially closed industrial processing with minerals/metals at elevated temperature (e.g. smelters, furnaces, refineries, coke ovens), open transfer and processing with minerals/metals at elevated temperature, the low energy manipulation of substances bound in materials or articles and production of mixtures or articles by tabletting, compression, extrusion or pelletisation.

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) and industrial abrasion processing with high release rate (e.g. sanding operations or paint stripping by shot-blasting). 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) and 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).

This substance can be found in complex articles, with no release intended: vehicles, machinery, mechanical appliances and electrical/electronic products (e.g. computers, cameras, lamps, refrigerators, washing machines) and electrical batteries and accumulators. This substance can be found in products with material based on: metal (e.g. cutlery, pots, toys, jewellery).

This substance is used in the following products: welding & soldering products.

This substance is used in the following areas: formulation of mixtures and/or re-packaging. This substance is used for the manufacture of: metals.

This substance is used in the following activities or processes at workplace: mixing in open batch processes and hot work operations with metals (e.g. welding, soldering, gouging, brazing, flame cutting).

Other release to the environment of this substance is likely to occur from: outdoor use and indoor use.

This substance is used in the following products: metals, welding & soldering products, metal surface treatment products, non-metal-surface treatment products, inks and toners, laboratory chemicals and polymers. This substance has an industrial use resulting in manufacture of another substance (use of intermediates).

This substance is used in the following activities or processes at workplace: transfer of chemicals, mixing in open batch processes, production of mixtures or articles by tabletting, compression, extrusion or pelletisation, transfer of substance into small containers and potentially closed industrial processing with minerals/metals at elevated temperature (e.g. smelters, furnaces, refineries, coke ovens).

Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: formulation of mixtures and formulation in materials.

This substance is used in the following products: metals, metal surface treatment products and welding & soldering products.

This substance is used in the following areas: formulation of mixtures and/or re-packaging. This substance is used for the manufacture of: metals and machinery and vehicles.

This substance is used in the following activities or processes at workplace: transfer of chemicals, transfer of substance into small containers, potentially closed industrial processing with minerals/metals at elevated temperature (e.g. smelters, furnaces, refineries, coke ovens), hot work operations with metals (e.g. welding, soldering, gouging, brazing, flame cutting), open transfer and processing with minerals/metals at elevated temperature and high energy work-up of substances bound in materials or articles (e.g. hot rolling/forming, grinding, mechanical cutting, drilling or sanding).

Release to the environment of this substance can occur from industrial use: in the production of articles and in processing aids at industrial sites.

ECHA has no public registered data on the use of this substance in activities or processes at the workplace.
