Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a solid

Description of key information

Viscosity is not considered to be relevant since fatty acids, C8-C10, zinc salts are solid at ambient temperature (ca. 20°C).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Regulation, Annex XI, 1., a study on viscosity does not need to be conducted if the available data are adequate for assessment. At ambient temperature, Fatty acids, C8 -10, zinc salts is a solid (melting point is 120 °C). According to ECHA REACH TGD R.7a,, viscosity is relevant only to liquids.
