Impurities or additives: When a specific critical property is calculated from industry data and where the majority of data submitters have indicated that the property relates to cases containing impurities and/or additives, then the respective critical property icon is modified with an asterisk (*). Can be ignited under almost all ambient temperature conditions. 3.2, Table A), Directive 2008/68/EC, last amended by Regulation 2019/1243/EU, 25 July 2019, EU. More information about CAS and the CAS registry can be found here. A substance may have its use restricted to certain articles or products and therefore not all the examples may apply to the specific substance. The per substance REACH registration status will be made available as soon as possible thereafter. Welcome to PubChem! This substance is used in the following products: polymers, coating products, fillers, putties, plasters, modelling clay, inks and toners, non-metal-surface treatment products, paper chemicals and dyes and washing & cleaning products. are damaged, end user should discontinue use High vapor concentrations cause dizziness, drunkeness, and anesthesia. The annexes to this directive provide detailed information about the minimum requirements for all safety and health signs. It covers their hazardous properties, classification and labelling, and information on how to use them safely. Also referred to as the Plastics Implementation Measure (PIM), this Regulation provides the Union List of monomers and other substances authorized in the manufacture of food contact plastics. Common Names Styrene monomer Vinylbenzene Vinylbenzol Phenylethylene Phenethylene Phenylethene Cinnamol Cinnamene Styrol Styrole Styrolene CAS# 100-42-5 Formula C8H8 Figure 1.1 Conventional Technologies 1.1.1 The conventional method of producing styrene monomer involves the alkylation of benzene with ethylene to produce ethyl benzene, which These reactions may be explosive. Properties of concern are calculated at four "levels" of certainty: The following properties of concern are calculated: The substance properties displayed in this section are derived from Harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) data, entries in the Candidate list of substances of very high concern for authorisation, the PBT assessment list, the ED assessment list, REACH registered dossier data and from notifications made under CLP. This substance is used in the following products: polymers. All liquid chemicals have been tested between approximately 20°C and 66/2010/EC, L 27/1, 30 Jan 2010 (T. 3 of Anx VI to CLP; Candidate List of SVHCs), EU. Table 3 of Annex VI to CLP Regulation); and (2) the Candidate List of substances of very high concern (SVHC). Lyondell Chemical Company uses an alternative process, a proprietary technology, to manufacture styrene monomer. Mixing styrene in equal molar portions with any of the following substances in a closed container caused the temperature and pressure to increase: chlorosulfonic acid, oleum, and sulfuric acid [NFPA 1991]. the products in which the substance may be used) may refer to uses as intermediate and under controlled conditions, for which there is no consumer exposure. Note that for readability purposes, only the pictograms, signal words and hazard statements referred in more than 5% of the notifications under CLP are displayed. This substance has been found in the following regulatory activities (directly, or inheriting the regulatory context of a parent substance): This list represents a calculated inventory of substances based on the list of harmonized substances contained in Table 3 of Annex VI to the CLP Regulation (1272/2008/EC). What is styrene monomer and how is it used? Precautionary statements - describe recommended measures to minimise or prevent adverse effects resulting from exposure to a hazardous product or improper storage or handling of a hazardous product.
