Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The viscosity of the xylene isomers ranges from 0.58 to 0.76 mPa.s at 25˚C. The viscosity of m-xylene is 0.58 mPa.s (0.67 mm2/s), for o-xylene it is 0.76 mPa.s (0.87 mm2/s) and for p-xylene it is 0.60 mPa.s (0.70 mm2/s).

The mean value is 0.75 mm2/s.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

0.75 mm²/s (static)
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The CRC Handbook (Lide, 2008) is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. Kinematic viscosity was calculated by dividing the dynamic viscosity by the density of each individual isomer.
