GPS Safety Summary

Triacetondiamine (TAD)

This Product Safety Summary is intended to provide a general overview of the
chemical substance in the context of ICCA Global Product Strategy. The
information on the summary is basic information and is not intended to
provide emergency response information, medical information or treatment

Substance name
Triacetondiamine (TAD)
CAS-No. 36768-62-4

General statement
Because TAD is used as an intermediate in the chemical industry under
strictly controlled conditions, exposure is very limited. Consumer risk and
exposure is very unlikely as TAD is manufactured and handled in industrial
settings only.

The environmental effects, ecotoxicology and toxicology information avail-
able for TAD is provided based on studies and/or a reliable evaluation of its
hazardous properties.

TAD should not enter surface water, groundwater water and soil. General and
substance specific operational conditions and risk management measures are
in place preventing exposure to workers and release to the environment.

Uses and application
TAD is used as an intermediate for the production of other chemicals in the
chemical industry. It is mainly used as a precursor for highly efficient light

Physical/chemical properties
TAD is a colourless liquid with a characteristic odor at standard temperature
and pressure. The density is 0.91 g/cm³ which is lower than that of water.
TAD does not react with water or oxygen. It is not classified as flammable
and it is not classified as an oxidizer or an explosive substance. The
substance will self-ignite at 300 °C.

Health effects
TAD is harmful following a single oral exposure. The substance causes
severe skin burns and serious eye damage. TAD showed no mutagenic
effects in bacteria with or without metabolic activation.

 Effect Assessment                    Result

 Acute toxicity (oral)                harmful if swallowed
 Irritation/corrosion (skin, eye)     corrosive to the skin and to the eyes
 Genotoxicity/mutagenicity            not mutagenic in bacteria

Environmental effects
Based on available data for the substance, TAD is harmful to aquatic
organisms with long lasting effects. The product is not readily biodegradable
and it has no potential to bioaccumulate.

 Effect Assessment                  Result
 Aquatic toxicity                   harmful to aquatic organism

 Fate and Behavior                  Result
 Biodegradation                     not readily biodegradable
 Bioaccumulation potential          no bioaccumulation expected
 PBT/vPvB conclusion                not considered to be either PBT or vPvB


Human health
TAD is used as an intermediate in the chemical industry in closed systems
under strictly controlled conditions.
Worker exposure to this chemical in the manufacturing facilities is low
because the process, storage and handling operations are enclosed. Specific
operational conditions and risk management measures assure limited
workplace exposures. These practices include handling with good ventilation.
When containers and tanks are cleaned, residues are disposed of as
hazardous waste. All workers are trained in the safety measures of handling
the substance including using personal protective equipment.
Consumers will not come in contact with TAD.

TAD is manufactured and used in the chemical industry in closed systems
and therefore no release to the environment is expected. Direct use by
consumers is not intended.

Risk management recommendations
TAD is transferred and handled in closed systems. Apparatus and pipelines
are free from leaks. There is no ventilation to atmosphere. The emissions are
minimized by appropriate technical measures.

All personal protective measures (respiratory protection, hand protection, eye
protection, skin and body protection) are strictly observed. All work is done
by regularly trained personnel.
The requirements for disposal are strictly monitored.
