Additional information

The melting point of partially unsaturated TEA-Esterquat was investigated using three different methods (OECD Guideline 102 and EU-Method A.1., differential scanning calorimetry and capillary method) and the Penetrometer-Test. According to the observation with the three different methods the following conclusion can be drawn: The test item is a solid at ambient temperature and has the character of a waxy, viscous solidified liquid. The test item has no specific melting point. With increasing temperature, the viscosity of the test item decreases. According to the Penetrometer-Test, the test item is a solid up to a temperature of 85°C. The test item is fluid at 110°C.
