General Information

Implementation:
EU
Remarks:

On the basis of the available oral, inhalation and dermal data, the substance 'Paraffin Waxes (Fischer-Tropsch), full range, C15-50 - branched and linear' does not require classification for lethal effects following a single exposure according to Regulation 1272/2008/EC.

However, as a low viscosity hydrocarbon, there is a potential aspiration hazard following oral exposure to 'Paraffin Waxes (Fischer-Tropsch), full range, C15-50 - branched and linear'. It is therefore appropriate to classify product grades with kinematic viscosity ≤ 20.5 cSt at 40°C as Aspiration Toxicity Category 1 (H304) according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
