Additional information

The viscosity of the submission substance was determined according to ASTM D 446 (capillary viscosimeter). The following values were obtained:

133.3 mm^2/s (20°C); 49.2 mm^2/s (40°C).

Based on the kinematic viscosity of the test item at 40°C of 49.2 mm^2/s, a classification for Aspiration hazard according to REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) is not applicable.  

In conclusion, according to REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) no classification requirements exist for the submission substance with regard to aspiration hazard.
