Executive summary:

The relative density of the test item has been determined to be 1.09 at 20.0 ± 0.5°C, using the pycnometer method, designed to be compatible with Method A3 Relative Density of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Description of key information

The relative density of the test substance was determined to be 1.09 at 20.0 ± 0.5°C, using the pycnometer method, designed to be compatible with EC test method A.3, under GLP conditions (Butler and White, 2010).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
