1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Study was performed according to an industry accepted ASTM guideline.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: ASTM 97-09 Standard Test Method for Pour Point of Petroleum Products
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Remarks:
The company is ISO 9001/2000 Certified which requires annual audits to demonstrate ability to provide products meeting customer & regulatory requirements and documentation of analytical procedures, maintenance & calibration of equipment.
Type of method:
pour point
Melting / freezing pt.:
-6 °C
Remarks on result:
other: The melting point was not determined because the substance is a viscous liquid at 20 C and 1013 hPa. The pour point is -6 deg. C
Conclusions:
The test substance is a viscous liquid with a pour point of -6 degrees C.
Executive summary:

The melting point of the test substance was not determined because its physical state at 20 C and 1013 hPa is a viscous liquid. The test substance has a pour point of - 6 degrees C, as determined by the ASTM D97 procedure.
