Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The melting point of 21-22°C for a substance with more than 98% purity qualifies the substance as a solid. Nevertheless many technical qualities have less purity and therefore are liquid at 20°C. The material will normally be handled as liquid melt in industrial applications.
