Results and discussion

Boiling point
Atm. press.:
101.325 kPa
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
> 175 °C

Any other information on results incl. tables

The DSC-curve showed a strong exothermic effect starting at 175°C. The effects above 175°C were due to reaction and/or decomposition of the test substance. After the experiment, a brown coloured molten residue remained in the sample container. Boiling of the test substance was not observed below the temperature at which reaction and/or decomposition started. Therefore, Aquapel® 203 has no boiling temperature.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Reaction and/or decomposition of the test substance was observed above 175°C: boiling of the test substance was not observed below the temperature at which reaction and/or decomposition started. Therefore, Aquapel® 203 has no boiling temperature.
