Description of key information


In a DSC measurement and a subsequent pour point determination the melting point of the test substance was determined. In the DSC experiment, no melting point was observed. In a pour point experiment it was determined that the melting point is < -20°C. Thus, no key value for the chemical safety assessment will be given.


Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

DSC Measurement: No melting point is observed.

This suggests that the sample solidifies in a glassy state. Therefore a pour point test was carried out.


Pour Point Method

Two samples were placed in screw-capped tubes and thermostated for one hour.

Both samples were liquid at -20 °C.


The melting point is less than -20 °C:
