Physical & Chemical properties

Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties of the registered substance were determined from experimental testing or from data on contituents.

Some endpoints were waived, based on chemical structure of constituents or experience in handling and use of the substance.

The substance is a brown viscous liquid at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.

It is expected to sink into water because of its relative density of 1.157.

The substance contains known constituents having different vapour pressures, water solubilities and log P.

No hazard was identified with regard to physical properties (flammability, explosivity, oxidising properties, self-heating substance) based on Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation).
