Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, the average density of the test substance was determined to be 0.96 g/cm3 at 20ºC. The relative density was 960.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the density of the test substance according to Method NF T20 – 053. The determination was carried out with a pycnometer using the displacement method and hexadecane as solvent, in duplicate. Under the study conditions, the average density of the test substance was determined to be 0.96 g/cm3 at 20ºC. The relative density was 960 (Börjesson, 2012).

Description of key information

The density of the test substance was determined using pycnometer method according to Method NF T20 – 053 (Börjesson, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
0.96
