Flame Retardants

Tris(isopropylphenyl)phosphate
26967-76-0

Where is it Commonly Found?

Tris(isopropylphenyl)phosphate (TIPP) is used as a flame retardant and plasticizer in PVC, polyurethanes, textile coatings, adhesives, paints and pigment dispersions (Brooke et al. 2009). TIPP also functions as a plasticizer in applications such as cables, cellulosic polymers, and thermoplastics (EFRA 2006).

HEALTH EFFECT SUMMARY

Little data is available on the toxicity of TIPP. An environmental risk evaluation by the Environment Agency of the United Kingdom found that TIPP has the potential to meet persistence, bioaccumulation and toxicity (PBT) criteria and recommended testing of its environmental half-life (Brooke et al. 2009). Commercial TIPP contains other compounds, such as triphenyl phosphate (TPP), for which delayed neurotoxicity may result from exposure to high oral doses in excess of 1 000 mg/kg (Sjögren et al. 2010).The National Toxicology Program of the US National Library of Medicine is currently conducting research including reproductive and developmental toxicity tests on TIPP.

Additional Facts

A yellow, waxy solid,Tris(isopropylphenyl)phosphate, is susceptible to the formation of highly toxic and flammable phosphine gas in the presence of strong reducing agents such as hydrides. Partial oxidation by oxidizing agents may result in the release of toxic phosphorus oxides.
