Description of key information

The melting point of the substance is > 723K (>450°C), EU Method A.1, Atwall & Tremain (2009)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
450 K

Additional information

The melting point of the test material was investigated in a study which was conducted in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.1.

Under the conditions of the study the melting temperature of the test material was determined to be in excess of 723 K.

In actual fact, the melting point of the substance is expected to be much higher than 1000 °C and the temperature of 450°C stated is the maximum temperature possible in the DSC melting point apparatus.
