Solubility: soluble in water.
Risk: irritation, irritation to skin, eye.
Animal toxicity: hamster oral LD50: 6000mg/Kg;
mouse oral LD50: 8100mg/Kg;
rabbit oral LD50: 7000mg/Kg;
rat oral LD50: 6770mg/Kg.
Ecology: May be hazardous to environment. Water body should be given special attention.
Characteristics: excellent dispersing, emulsifying, thickening, film-forming abilities. The degree of hydrolysis has significant effect on performance; average molecular weight is lower, thickening, film-forming capabilities are lower.
