Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.5 (Surface Tension)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
Result was not corrected using the Harkins-Jordan correction table as correction was not applicalbe to the apparatus used. Instrument gave a direct reading for surface tension within +/- 0.5mN/m. This deviation did not affect the integrity of the study.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The surface tension of the substance is 64.2 mN/m. The substance is not a surface-active material.
Executive summary:

The surface tension of the substance was determined according to EU Method A.5 using the ring method based on ISO 304.

The surface tension of the substance is 64.2 mN/m at 21 degrees C and the substance is not regarded as a surface-active material according to the guideline.
