Table 1 shows the concentrations of Ferbam of the test substance incubated at 54°C and at 4°C. According to OECD (1981), a substance is considered stable, if the characteristics are constant or do not differ more than 5%.

Table 1: Concentration of ferbam in the Ferbam incubated at 54 °C and 4 °C.

 Sample  ferbam (% - w/w) 14 days
 Ferbam (54 °C)  98.24
 Reference (4 °C)  98.53
Conclusions:
According to the results, the test-substance Ferbam is considered stable to environment and to air.
Executive summary:

The study was conducted equivalent or similar to Accelerated Storage Test (CIPAC-test). According to the results, the test substance was incubated at 54°C and at 4°C for 14 days, Ferbam is considered stable to environment and to air because the characteristics differ only 0.3 %

Description of key information

The study was conducted equivalent or similar to Accelerated Storage Test (CIPAC-test).

According to the results, the test-substance ferbam is considered stable to environment and to air.

Additional information

Key: Pessin, 1999

The study was conducted equivalent or similar to Accelerated Storage Test (CIPAC-test). According to the results, the test substance was incubated at 54°C and at 4°C for 14 days, Ferbam is considered stable to environment and to air because the characteristics differ only 0.3 %

Supporting Information: Christiaens, 1987

The study was conducted according to CIPAC MT 46 method. According to the results, the test-substance was incubated for 55 °C for 14 days, ferbam is considered stable to environment and to air.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to OECD (1981), a substance is considered stable, if the characteristics are constant or do not differ more than 5%.
