aberrations in mammalian cells in vitro.
DIR SML = 6 mg/kg
TDI = 0.1 mg/kg b.w.
(SCF, 17th Series, 1986).
Available : data on use; data on residual
monomers and the fraction with molecular
mass < 1000 D.
Remark: the two monomers (starting
substances) have been evaluated by the SCF
in the past and classified in list 2 and list 3,
respectively. The two monomers are:
? Methyl methacrylate (REF_N. 21130); list
2 with a group t-TDI = 0.1 mg/kg b.w. (as
methacrylic acid) (Reference: Scientific
Committee for Food 42nd series of reports
of the SCF, 2000)
? Trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate
(REF_N. 25840); list 3 with a restriction of
0.05 mg/kg of food. (Reference: Opinion of
the Scientific Committee on Food on the
16th additional list of monomers and
additives for food contact materials, adopted
by the SCF on 13/12/2001)
RIVM/DE SDS, April 2001 = CS/PM/3324
(Adopted at the 131st SCF meeting, 27
t-TDI: 1 mg/kg b.w. pending check of the
2-year oral studies in rats and dogs and oral
carcinogenicity studies in mice and rats.
