Executive summary:

The aim of this study was the determination of the melting point.

The test procedure used was A.1 method (1.4.4.1 Differential Thermal Analysis; DTA and 1.4.4.2 Differential Scanning Calorimetry, DSC) as described in Regulation CE 440/2008.

The method for analysis was Thermal Gravimetric Analysis

The result was as follows:

The test substance decomposes without melting at temperatures over 900ºC.

Description of key information
