Additional information

The acute oral toxicity was 29.2 g per kg body weight in rats (LD50) and the acute dermal toxicity was > 20 mL per kg body weight in rabbits. Both studies are reported in 1954. Nevertheless the data indicate very low or no acute toxicity via oral or dermal routes.

Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification is derived from the the acute toxicity data, as the LD50 values are far beyond the limits for classification of 2000 or even 5000 mg per kg body weight.
