A hazard evaluation of the candidate face net impregnant dipentyl malate ENT-20829 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. No corneal injury, iritis or conjunctivitis was 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 aerosol as well as acute and subchronic saturated vapor inhalation exposures of rats resulted experimentally in no deleterious effect.
