Key result
Surface tension:
72.9 mN/m
Temp.:
20.2 °C
Conc.:
1 g/L
Temperature: 20.2 - 20.3 °C 
Mean surface tension of the test item at 1 g/L (corrected value): 72.9 mN/m ± 1.0 mN/m.

Conclusions:
Surface tension of the test item is 72.9 mN/m at 1 g/l.
The test item is not considered as surface active
Executive summary:

The surface tension of test item was determined acccording to OECD guideline 115 / EU method A.5 based on the ring method and under GLP.

Surface tension of the test item is 72.9 mN/m at 1 g/l. This data is considered as a key data.

The test item is not considered as surface active

Description of key information
