Description of key information

The viscosity of the xylene isomers ranges from 0.581 to 0.76 mPa s at 25˚C. The viscosity of m-xylene is 0.58 mPa s (0.67 mm2/s), for o-xylene it is 0.76 mPa s (0.87 mm2/s), for p-xylene it is 0.60 mPa s (0.70 mm2/s) and for ethylbenzene it is 0.631 mPa s (0.73 mm2/s). The mean value of 0.74 mm2/sec will be used in the risk assessment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The CRC Handbook (Lide, 2008) is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.
