Description of key information

HDI Uretdion is not readily biodegradable. Within 28 days 1 % of the test substance was degraded (Closed Bottle Test), (Bayer AG, 2000).
In a 'Modified MITI (II) Test' with adapted inoculum 18 % degradation of HDI Uretdion could be obtained within 28 days (Currenta, 2009). Therefore the substance is considered to be "Not Inherently Biodegradable".
This result is used for assessing the behaviour of the substance in STPs.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed
