Description of key information

The viscosity for Hydrocarbons, C6-C7, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <5% n-hexane is in the range of 0.5 - 1.4 mm2/s at 20 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The measurement of viscosity of petroleum distillates is covered by method ASTM D 7042. A range of 0.5 to 1.4 mm2/s at 20 °C covers all possible grades within this substance description if measured with the agreed method. A test by ExxonMobil Chemical (2010) demonstrates that measured values according to ASTM D 7042 also fall within this borderline values with a viscosity of 0.7 mm2/s at 20 °C.
