Administrative data

Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2002
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Reliability rating is 2 because melting point/pour point was carried out using ASTM 5950 method for pour point determination of petroleum products. Although not conducted under GLP, ExxonMobil laboratories have carried out pour point determinations reliably for a large number of petroleum lubricant substances following this standard ASTM method.

Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: ASTM D5950 (pour point)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The ASTM D5950 method determines the pour point of petroleum products using an automatic instrument that tilts the test jar during cooling and can detec flow movement of the material with an optical device.
GLP compliance:
no
