SKIN CORROSION: Membrane Barrier Test Method

OECD 435

CORROSITEX is recommended to evaluate the corrosive potential of substances and mixtures, it is particularly used on extreme PH products but not only.

OECD 435 CORROSITEX will allow to sub categorize your mixtures in categories 1A,1B and 1C according to the rules defined by the GHS (Global Harmonized System and the UN Packing Group (class8)

The principle of the Membrane Barrier Test Method  is based on the hypothesis that corrosive chemicals are able to penetrate synthetic proteinaceous bio barrier by diffusion or erosion, presumably by the same mechanism of corrosion that operate on living skin.
