Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Done in accordance to testing method ISO 3016 however not under GLP.
Justification for type of information:
The hypothesis for the analogue approach is that the both the registration substance, Hydrocarbons, C14-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (target substance) and the test substance, Hydrocarbons, C13-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics (source substance), are both hydrocarbons with some constituents in common. The substances therefore have qualitatively similar properties (RAAF Scenario 2 applies).
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
read-across: supporting information
according to guideline
other: ISO 3016
GLP compliance:
Not specified
Type of method:
pour point
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
< -27 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
The pour measured using the ASTM D 97 method is less than -27°C at 1 atm.
Executive summary:

The pour point of the substance Hydrocarbons, C13-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, < 2% aromatics measured using the ISO 3016 method is less than -27°C at 1 atm.

Description of key information

The pour point of Hydrocarbons, C14-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics, read across from the substance Hydrocarbons, C13-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics, measured using the ASTM D 97 method, is below 0°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
