Conclusions:
The relative density of the test material has been determined to be 1.20 at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C.
Executive summary:

Relative Density: 

1.20 at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C, using the pycnometer method, Method A.3 Relative Density of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 109 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 27 July 1995.

Description of key information

The relative density of the substance was determined as 1.20 at 20 °C according to OECD Guideline 109 using the pycnometer method.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
