Description of key information

No irritation or other skin changes were observed in an acute dermal toxicity study performed according to OECD testing guideline 402 (see chapter 7.3.1).

Silicon carbide is an inert chemical and is likely to cause mechanical eye irritation due to large particle size and shape. Mechanical eye irritation produced by silicon carbide would camouflage any chemical irritation that might be caused by the substance. For this reason and due to the unethical aspect of in vivo eye irritation testing of a mechanical irritant, it is not considered reasonable to perform an eye irritation study.
