(a) Chemical substance and significant new uses subject to reporting. (1) The chemical substance identified generically as alkenoic acid, reaction products with [oxybis(alkylene)]bis[(substituted alkyl)-alkanediol], polymers with isocyanatoalkane and substituted alkanoic acid, substituted monoacrylate alkanoate-blocked (PMN P-18-51) is subject to reporting under this section for the significant new uses described in paragraph (a)(2) of this section. The requirements of this section do not apply to quantities of the substance after they have been reacted (cured).

(2) The significant new uses are:

(i) Protection in the workplace. Requirements as specified in §721.63(a)(1), (2)(i), (iii) and (iv), (3) through (5), and (6) (particulate), and (c).

For §721.63(a)(5), respirators must provide a National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health assigned protection factor of at least 1000.

(ii) Hazard communication. Requirements as specified in §721.72(a) through (d), (f), (g)(1)(i) and (ix) ((irritation to eyes, lungs, and mucous membranes), (dermal sensitization), (respiratory sensitization)), (2)(i) through (v) (avoid eye contact), and (5). Alternative hazard and warning statements that meet the criteria of the Globally Harmonized System and OSHA Hazard Communication Standard may be used.

(iii) Industrial, commercial, and consumer activities. Requirements as specified in §721.80(f). It is a significant new use to use the substance other than as a waterborne ultraviolet curable coating resin binder for inkjet, ink, or overprint varnish. It is a significant new use to import the substance with greater than 24% of the branched alkyl acid moiety content. It is a significant new use to import the substance with greater than 0.1% isocyanate content.

(iv) Release to water. Requirements as specified in §721.90(a)(4), (b)(4), and (c)(4) where N=660.

(b) Specific requirements. The provisions of subpart A of this part apply to this section except as modified by this paragraph (b).
