Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Details on test material:

Results and discussion

Vapour pressure
Temp.:
20 °C
Vapour pressure:
< 0 Pa
Remarks on result:
other: The weight loss of the test substance at 240°C was lower than the weight loss of benzo(ghi)perylene at the same temperature. From this, it was concluded that the vapour pressure of the test substance is 1.33 x10 -8 Pa = 1.00 x 10-10 mm Hg.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The isothermal thermogravimetric effusion method was chosen for the determination of the vapour pressure of Corsair Resin 5. Below the melting temperature of the test substance no significant weight loss was observed. Above the melting temperature of Corsair Resin 5 the vapour pressure extrapolated to 20°C (293K) was determined to be < 1.33 x 10-8 Pa = < 1.00 x 10-10 mm Hg.
