Butyl Glycol undegoes labelling change due to new regulations classifying it as a hazardous solvent

From 1 December 2023, Butyl Glycol (CAS 111-76-2) will change its classification to toxic by inhalation within the European Community. For this reason, it will become toxic by  inhalation, according to the CLP regulation. As of 1 December 2023, Butyl Glycol will undergo a labelling change due to new regulations. This may result in significant changes to the compliance and safety of your finished products.
