Description of key information

The viscosity was determined according to OECD 114 guideline using a rotational viscometer.
The viscosity of the test item is:
4.17 at 60°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

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

Additional information

The substance shows Newtonian behaviour at higher shear rates. Apparent deviations from Newtonian behaviour at shear stresses below 2 Pa may be artefacts as, for this sample, the instrument is near the limit of its operating range in this region. Evaluation of the viscosity was performed for the Newtonian region shown by the full line in figure 1.

Dynamic viscosity: 4.17 ± 0.08 mPa.s at 60 °C

Since the test material was solid at 20°C the test was only performed at 60°C. The keyparameter presented is the viscosity at 60°C
