A hazard evaluation of the candidate face net impregnant technical grade 10-undecenoic acid ENT-2065 was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits and guinea pigs. Mild primary skin and eye irritation was observed but not skin sensitization. Little hazard was found from acute ingestion or from subchronic inhalation of saturated vapor atmospheres at room temperatures. However, respiratory distress was seen during exposures to aerosols or to saturated vapor atmospheres generated at 100C. It is recommended that ENT-2065 be approved for testing as a candidate face net impregnant.
