    `Versatic' 9-11 is a mixture of tertiary carboxylic acids each having 9 to 11 carbon atoms in the molecule. `Versatic' 9-11 and its monoglycidyl and monovinyl esters are used in the paint and resin industries.

    The vinyl ester of `Versatic' 9-11 has been shown to possess skin irritating and sensitizing properties comparable to those of butyl and 2-ethylhexyl acrylates.

    `Versatic' 9-11 and its monoglycidyl esters are much less irritant than the vinyl ester and should not prove hazardous to the skin, but unnecessary contact should be avoided.
