Description of key information

All of the substances in the calcium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14-C22 category have surface tensions in the range of 66.0 to 71.4 mN/m at 20°C. As the cut-off for being considered surface active is 60 mN/m, the substances in the category are not considered to be surface active.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The data on calcium myristate, calcium 12 -hydroxystearate and calcium behenate are taken from proprietary study reports (Harlan 2013).
