Description of key information

TGIC has a surface tension of 65.7 mN/m which is higher than 60mN/m, below  which the substances have to be called surface active. Comparatively, distilled water has a surface tension of 72.75 mN/m.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Surface tension:
65.7
in mN/m at 20°C and concentration in mg/L:
1 000

Additional information

As compared to distilled water with a surface tension of 72.75 mN/m, TGIC has a surface tension of 65.7 mN/m, .

Distilled water is considered not to be surface-active. The value of 65.7 mN/m is higher than the limit for surface active substances of 60 mN/m, and thus, TGIC is not considered to be surface-active.
