Executive summary:

The pour point of the substance Hydrocarbons, C16-C20, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics has been determined at 9°C according to the ASTM D 97-66 method.

Description of key information

There is no data available for Hydrocarbons, C14-C20 (even numbered), n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics.However, data is available for structural analogue, Hydrocarbons, C16-C20, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics. This data is read across to based on analogue read across and a discussion and report on the read across strategy is provided as an attachment in IUCLID Section 13.

The pour point of the substance Hydrocarbons, C16-C20, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics, measured following the ASTM D 97-66 method is 9°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
6 °C
