Regulatory & Compliance+
- All components of STEPOSOL MET-10U are listed in the following countries; the registration number for the active ingredient is in parenthesis: United States (1356964-77-6), Europe (REACH: 01-2120058432-61-XXXX) and Japan (ENCS: 2-825). It is the responsibility of the importer and end user to comply with the chemical control regulations for each country.
- Per the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Consumer Product Rule, OTC Model Rule and Federal VOC Standards, STEPOSOL MET-10U is exempt from VOC limit requirements because it is a LVP-VOC (low vapor pressure VOC). All regulations define an LVP-VOC as a compound or mixture which meets one of the following criteria: 1) The compound has a vapor pressure of less than 0.1 mm Hg at 20 °C; 2) the compound has more than 12 carbon atoms, or a mixture compromised solely of compounds with more than 12 carbon atoms, and the vapor pressure is unknown or 3) the compound has a boiling point greater than 216 °C.
Technical Details & Test Data+
Hansen Solubility Parameters-D: 16.58, P: 9.58, H: 8.45
The Hansen solubility parameters are a key characteristic of solvency power used to predict if one material will dissolve another one to form a solution. As shown in the graph below, STEPOSOL MET-10U has a large Hansen space, overlapping the four solvent groups. This means that STEPOSOL MET-10U will dissolve a wide range of soils.
Safety & Health+
STEPOSOL MET-10U was found to be slightly toxic orally (LD50 = 550 mg/kg). Undiluted product may cause severe eye and skin irritation.
Packaging & Availability+
Available in drums (390 lb, 177 kg) or bulk.
Storage & Handling+
- Bulk Storage Information: 316 and 304 stainless steel tanks are recommended. Temperatures up to 54 °C (130 °F) can be maintained for long periods of time without degradation of the product.
- Normal safety precautions (i.e., gloves and safety goggles) should be employed when handling STEPOSOL MET-10U. Contact with eyes and prolonged contact with skin should be avoided. Wash thoroughly after handling material. Consult the SDS for additional information on properties and handling.
