Description of key information

Additional information

Synthetic amorphous aluminum sodium silicates are not volatile under environmental conditions due to their chemical nature and inherent physical properties: 

Due to their low water solubility and extremely low vapour pressure, silicates are expected to be distributed mainly into soils/sediments, weakly into the water and probably not at all in the air.

Synthetic amorphous aluminum sodium silicate is expected to combine undistinguishably with the soil layer or sedimentdue to their chemical identity with inorganic soil matter and will be subjected to slow natural transformation processes of weathering.
