Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Administrative data

particle size distribution (granulometry)
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is marketed or used in a non solid or granular form
Justification for type of information:
In accordance with column 2 of REACh Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is marketed or used in a non-solid or granular form. As presented under Section 4.1, the substance is an orange-red wax, not mobile. Therefore the study is scientifically not necessary.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information
appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
19-25 October 2016
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Justification for type of information:
Data come from the description of the test substance in the GLP report on other physico-chemical properties. No guideline is required according to REACh TGD. The substance is considered to be adequately characterised. Therefore full validation applies.
no guideline required
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Visual observation
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
GLP certificate (inspected on 13 and 14 October 2014 / signed on 8 April 2015)
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
wax, not mobile but considered as liquid due to the results of the study related to the determination of the freezing point of the substance
Key result
other: wax, not mobile
Substance type:
The substance is an orange-red wax, not mobile at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.
Executive summary:

The data come from the description of the test substance reported in the GLP study reports on physico-chemical properties.
