Conclusions:
The relative density of the test item has been determined to be 2.63 at 22.5 ± 0.5°C. This study is considered to be scientifically justified for use as a key study.
Executive summary:

The relative density of the test material has been determined to be 2.63 at 22.5 ± 0.5°C, using a gas comparison pycnometer, designed to be compatible with Method A3 Relative Density of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Description of key information

One key study exists. This study was conclusive, done to a valid guideline (EU Method A3) and the study was conducted under standard laboratory conditions. It is therefore scientifically justified for use as a key study under Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
