The SIN List database can now provide you the answer to that question. Information on uses of the substances on the SIN List is now available for roughly one hundred SIN substances.
You can find specific information on both how chemicals are used (their technical function) as well as in what kind of products and articles you may find them, such as electronics, textile, paint and plastics.
By searching for example “plastics” in the SIN database, and in the second field choose “Search for use and function”, the database gives you a list of SIN chemicals used in plastics.
“Information on uses has been requested by companies and other concerned parties”, says ChemSec Project Coordinator Jerker Ligthart. “For us this is an ongoing effort and further information on uses will be made available during the next months. The database itself will soon also be made more user friendly, as we want the SIN List Database to be a useful and effective tool for a variety of actors.”
