Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Remarks on result:
other: performed at ambient pressure

Three measurements have been made with an average of 92.8°C / 365.9°K and a S.D. = 0.19°C / 0.19 +K

The melting point of TEPIC-G is 92.8°C
Executive summary:

Based on the DSC measuremtns over a range of 40°C the melting point of TEPIC-G is 92.8°C

Description of key information

Melting point is 92 - 96 °C at normal pressure

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
365 K

Additional information

Melting point was cited in NICNAS Chemical report (1994) from SDS data of data owner Ciba Geigy Ltd.

The value measured with a particular batch was 92.8°C for TEPIC-G, and 94.6°C for TGIC. Both values are within the range of 92 -96°C published by NICNAS
