Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:

Additional information:
Justification for selection of skin sensitisation endpoint:
Due to its inherent properties (water insolubility, absence of lipophilic characteristics), slags, tin-smelting does not cross biological membranes and does not have skin penetrating properties. Therefore, the substance does not have any potential of being a skin sensitiser.

Based on the results of the water solubility test (see IUCLID endpoint 4.8 of the technical dossier) negligibly small amounts of metal ions are leached out during a 7-day period and under acidic conditions. Even in case that workers have skin contact with slags, tin-smelting and leaching-out of metal ions occurs (e.g. via contact with perspiratory liquids) a subsequent skin sensitising effect can per se be excluded since all of the corresponding metals/metal oxides have been assessed as not being skin sensitisers during the respective registration processes and as indicated in the submitted C&L Notifications.
