Six NZW rabbits (3 per sex) were treated dermally with 0.5 mL of the undiluted test substance, and the test site was covered with a semi-occlusive dressing for 4 hours. After the exposure period, the patches were removed and residual test material was wiped from the exposed skin with gauze moistened with distilled water. One hour after patch removal, very slight erythema and well-defined erythema were noted on 4/6 and 2/6 rabbits, respectively. The erythema cleared by 72 hours on 4/6 rabbits; the remaining 2 animals exhibited barely perceptible erythema at this time point. By day 7, no traces of irritation was observed in these animals. The PDIS = 1.1 (Slight irritant).
