Any other information on results incl. tables

There were no signs of ill-health in any animal during the study. The application site of one animal was stained by the test substance but this did not prevent the assessment of irritation.

There were no signs of irritation in one animal.

In two animals, very slight erythema and very slight oedema were seen approximately 1 hour after decontamination. very slight erythema was also seen in one of these animals 2 days after application. Additional signs of irritation consisted of desquamation in one animal and erythema beyond the application area of the other animal. All signs of irritation had completely resolved within 7 days of application.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
1,2,3,4-tetrachloro-hexafluorobutane is a slight irritant following a single four-hour application to rabbit skin.
Executive summary:

The purpose of this study was to assess the skin irritation potential of 1,2,3,4-tetrachloro-hexafluorobutane to rabbit, when administered by dermal application.


Three female rabbits each received a single four-hour application of 0.5 ml of 1,2,3,4-tetrachloro-hexafluorobutane to the shorn flank. The animals were assessed for up to 7 days for any signs of skin irritation.


There were no signs of irritation in one animal.


In two animals, very slight erythema and very slight oedema were seen approximately 1 hour after decontamination. Very slight erythema was also seen in one of these animals 2 days after application. Additional signs of irritation consisted of desquamation in one animal and erythema beyond the application area of the other animal. All signs of irritation had completely resolved within 7 days of application.


1,2,3,4-tetrachloro-hexafluorobutane is a slight irritant following a single four-hour application to rabbit skin.
