Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Reaction mass of 2,6-di-tert-butyl-p-cresol, 4,6-di-tert-butyl-o-cresol and 2,6-di-tert-butylphenolis classified as eye Category 2 irritant (H319: Causes serious eye irritation) and skin Category 2 irritant (H315: Causes skin irritation).

From the data available forReaction mass of 2,6-di-tert-butyl-p-cresol, 4,6-di-tert-butyl-o-cresol and 2,6-di-tert-butylphenol components, it is likely that solid 2,6-di-tert-butylphenol or high concentrations of 2,6-di-tert-butylphenol in the air (as mist/aerosols/dust) may cause irritation of skin, eye or respiratory tract. However, this scenario could be relevant for occupational settings.

In general, appropriate engineering controls and work practices to reduce employee exposure to the lowest level achievable must be in place with additional suitable skin, eye, face and respiratory protection in work areas and operations with high risks of exposure toReaction mass of 2,6-di-tert-butyl-p-cresol, 4,6-di-tert-butyl-o-cresol and 2,6-di-tert-butylphenol.
