Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The surface tension of the xylene isomers ranges from 28.01 to 29.76 mN/m at 25°C. The surface tension of m-xylene is 28.47 mN/m at 25°C, of o-xylene at 25˚C is 29.76 mN/m and of p-xylene is 28.01 mN/m at 25°C.

The mean surface tension is 28.75 mN/m at 25°C.
