Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
December 2009
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
study well documented, meets generally accepted scientific principles, acceptable for assessment
according to guideline
ASTM D-445 (Standard Test Method for Kinematic Viscosity of Transparent and Opaque Liquids (and Calculation of Dynamic Viscosity)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
This method covers the determination of the kinematic viscosity of liquid petroleum products, both transparent and opaque, by measuring the time of flow of a fixed volume of liquid at a given temperature through calibrated glass capillary instruments, using "gravity-flow." A procedure is given for a calculation of dynamic viscosities from measured kinematic viscosities
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
flow cup (static)
kinematic viscosity (in mm²/s)
>= 5.9 - <= 8.8
Remarks on result:
other: Typical value : 6.6
The viscosity of the substance at 100°F (38.8ºC) varies between 5.9 and 8.8 with a typical value of 6.6

Description of key information

The viscosity has been determined in-company using the test method ASTM D-445

Key value for chemical safety assessment

6.6 mm²/s (static)
at the temperature of:
40 °C

Additional information

The range of the viscosity of the substance at 38.8ºC varies between 5.9 and 8.8 with a typical value of 6.6, in mm2/s

Based on that the viscosity value, measured at 40ºC, is lower than 20,5 mm2/s for a hydrocarbon substance, the substance is classified for aspiration hazard (Asp. Tox. 1, H 304) according to CLP Regulation.
