Executive summary:

Method

The density of the test item was determined in a GLP-compliant study using a gas comparison pycnometer according to the EU A.3 . The experiment is deemed valid, conclusive and thus suitable for assessment without restrictions.

Result

The relative density was measured to be 1.0872 at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C.

Description of key information

The relative density was measured to be 1.0872 at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C (EU Method A.3).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
