Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Using a linear heating rate of 0.5 °C/min, Reactive Red F08-0146 did not melt up to 400 °C.
Executive summary:

This study has been performed in accordance with the study plan, Directive of the European Communities: Methods for the Determination of Physico-Chemical Properties (A1), OECD Guideline No. 102, ‘Melting Point / Melting Range’and the Principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and reported with a valid GLP certificate.


For the determination of the melting point or melting range, the capillary method was used. A small amount of the test item was heated in the electronic controlled sample block and the temperature around the sample was displayed. The sample was observed visually while raising the temperature. The initial and final melting temperatures were determined.

Using a linear heating rate of 0.5°C/min, Reactive Red F08-0146 did not melt up to 400°C.

No melting point was observed up to 400°C.
