7. Information on Toxicity : The results of tests carried out on similar products, indicate that it is unlikely to be harmful if swallowed (i.e. LD50 > 5 g/kg bodyweight, rates) and although a mild irritant, it is unlikely to be irritating to the skin or the eyes.
8. Information on Ecology : The results of tests carried out on similar products, , indicate that it is unlikely to be acutely harmful to the aquatic environment or to aerobic sewage organisms (e.g.LC50 for rainbow trout > 100 mg/l, 96 hours ; EC50 for aerobic sewage sludge organisms >1000 mg/l, 0.5 and 3 hours). However, it is advisable to keep aquatic discharges below these levels.
