Results and discussion

Results:
Uniform corrosion
The aluminium plates show a white residue on the plate (Specimen 1), the steel plates show a brown/black or dark grey residue on the plates (Specimen 1 and 2) and on and above the bottom of the glass receptacles a brown deposit was observed. Because the weight loss of the aluminum and steel plates was < 13.5%, the test was considered negative.

Localized corrosion
Localized corrosion was observed on two aluminium plates (Specimen 1 and Specimen 2). The depth of the deepest hole obtained with Specimen 1 was measured in ten-fold using a Surface Profile Gauge (PCWI International, Australia). The mean depth (n=10) was 54 µm (coefficient of variation: 2%). Because the mean depth of the aluminum plate was < 120 µm, the test was considered negative.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
In a GLP-compliant study performed in accordance with UN-MTC Section 37.4 (Test C.1), the corrosion to metals of the substance was determined at 55°C and a 7-day test period using 2 mm aluminium and steel plates (Test C.1). All weight losses (uniform corrosion) were < 13.5% (i.e. equivalent to 6.25 mm/year corrosion rate) and the mean depths of the deepest holes (localized corrosion) were < 120 µm. The test substance is therefore considered to be not corrosive to aluminium and steel.

The test substance does not need to be classified as 'corrosive to metals' according to the CLP Regulation.
