New labeling limits for H 317

New labeling limits from end of 2018

Products preserved with MIT will have to be labelled with hazard statement H 317 and exclamation mark pictogram in the near future. LANXESS assumes that the new labeling limits will apply from end of 2018 at the earliest.

 

Adaptation of the preservation strategy with MIT-free formulations

LANXESS is carefully following the implementation of this new classification and will provide customers with the necessary support to understand the consequences, and assistance in adapting preservation strategies accordingly. As MIT is a key preservative for in-can preservation, a good understanding of the new labelling and legal implementations should allow the industry to overcome the H317 challenge, and to move forward with sensitizer-free combinations.
