The fact that a compound is not listed under a specific CAS # in a countries inventory does not mean this compound cannot be used, it can be an exempt compound or a polymer which does not require listing, or it can be listed in a different category. Ask your supplier.
Commercial Products or generic terms used for products. For manufacturer see Polyether MFCT.
Most manufacturer use either MW or Hydroxyl number as a part of their code to identify products.

Color codes indicates what methods of identification was used.

Molecular weight
Hydroxyl number
. Uncertain
Some of these product names might not be commercial anymore, the product names still might be in old formulations
