Manufacturers of Silanes and Siloxanes have joined efforts for their REACH compliance activities and have launched in July 2008 the ReconSile REACH Consortium. To prepare a consistent REACH registration dossier, the Secretariat of the ReconSile Consortium is handled by ReachCentrum
II. Based on REACH analytical requirements, suggestion is:
- NMR (29Si, 13C, 1H)
- DSC/TGA IR spectra would not bring additional information to the NMR and GC-MS data and UV-Vis would most of the time not be needed for Si based materials. A simple expert statement would be enough.
IV. Impurities should be identified if > or = to 1%??V. SVHC impurities should be identified if > or = 0.1%
It is the responsibility of each company to select the right testing methods and operating conditions to test their substances. The only information that would be shared at the ReconSile level (via ReconSile Technical Service Providers) is the purity of the substance, and if necessary impurities (names and quantities).
