PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

This material was found not to be readily degradable in an OECD 301F test. The test material was coated onto silica gel to increase availability of this viscous test material. Comparison of respiration in inoculum blanks and test samples revealed that the oxygen consumption was significantly reduced in the vials containing test material when compared to the inoculum blanks. However, the log Pow of this material is <4.5 indicating it is not bioaccumulative. The substance is classified as toxic to reproduction, Cat. 2.

Overall, this material is not considered a PBT/vPvB, as the "B" criterion is not fulfilled.
