10 STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
Thermal decomposition: Note: No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
Further information: Apply the following regulations and datasheets of the German BG Chemie.:
M 050‚ Handling harmful substances’;
M053‚ General industrial protective measures for handling dangerous substances’.
No dangerous reaction if used as recommended.
11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Human experience:
Increased liver weights were recorded in rats exposed repeatedly to Octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane by inhalation or oral administration. No other liver changes were observed. Further studies on rabbits and guinea pigs showed no effect in the liver.
In range finding studies Octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane affected reproduction of laboratory animals exposed to high vapour concentrations of 700 ppm, but not in lower concentrations, while effects on maternal animals were already seen with 300 ppm and higher concentrations. The significance of these findings to humans is doubtful. In developmental studies in which rats and rabbits were exposed to Octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane by vapour
inhalations of high concentrations up to 700 ppm and 500 ppm respectively, no teratogenic effects (no malformations were observed).
