A hazard evaluation of the candidate face net impregnant ENT-4203-Gd, isobutyl mandelate Rutgers 850, was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats and rabbits. The technical grade compound did not produce primary irritation when applied to the intact or abraded skin of rabbits. Sight injury to the cornea and the conjunctiva were observed after a single application of the technical grade compound to the eyes of rabbits. Data indicate little acute toxic hazard from accidental ingestion. Acute and subchronic aerosol inhalation exposures of rats resulted experimentally in no deleterious effect. It is recommended that ENT-4203-Gd be approved for testing as a candidate face net impregnant.
