Endpoint:
viscosity
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
February 2012
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The viscometer that was used employs the principle of rotational viscometry - the torque required to turn an object, such as a spindle, in a fluid indicates the viscosity of the fluid.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
rotational viscometer (dynamic)
Temp.:
other: 25.0°C
Parameter:
dynamic viscosity (in mPa s)
Value:
3.03

Description of key information

The viscosity of dimethyl adipate has been determined to be 3.03 mPa.s at 25 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Viscosity:
3.03 mPa · s (dynamic)
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The viscosity was determined at 25 °C, therefore the value of 3.03 is certainly slightly underestimated for 20 °C.
