Description of key information

The mixture of the registered substance in the solvent does not fulfil the readily biodegradable criterion. Therefore, the registered substance has to be considered as not readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

In a manometric test conducted according to Directive 79/831/EEC (Annex V, Part C), the test material was found to be not readily biodegradable (after 28 days 9% of the test material has been degraded) (Bayer, 1991).
