Description of key information

Value estimated  from  value taken from OECD SIDS for dyciclopentadiene and from EU RAR naphthalene and from EU RAR for phenol

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
600 °C

Additional information

The substance dicyclopentadiene is very similar to substances indan and indene, which are present in the registered substance (two rings, partally aromatic) in concentation cca 50% (w/w) with same vapour pressure (1,3 kPa) and similar Flash Point (32,3°C vs 51°C for registered substance)

The content of naphthalene is usually cca 10% (w/w), however could be up to 30% (w/w) according to SIP (Section 1.2.)

The content of phenol is cca 15 % (w/w), could be up to 40 % (w/w)
