Eastman solvents and coalescents that qualify as a FIFRA inert ingredient based on CAS number, in the U.S.
FIFRA 2(m) defines inert ingredient as "an ingredient which is not active." Inert ingredients may be solvents, carriers, perfumes, dyes, and surfactants. They include any substance, or group of structurally similar substances, other than the active ingredient(s) that are intentionally included in a pesticide product. Inert ingredients are regulated under both FIFRA and FFDCA.
A food use is a use in, on or around or that may come into contact with food, including water for human consumption; feed, including water for animal consumption; or livestock unless a review of all available data supports the conclusion that the use will not result in residues in the food (including water for human consumption) or feed (including water for animal consumption).
Permitted solely for use in pesticide products applied to nonfood use sites, such as ornamental plants, highway right-of-ways, rodent control, etc. Food use is not permitted.
Note: Pesticide formulations must be identified to, and registered with, the EPA. Manufacturers of pesticide formulations should consult the EPA for information on the procedures required to obtain product registrations.
