Description of key information

Appearance

Non-solid, viscous liquid; fluidity increases significantly from 24 °C (start of melting range)

 

Melting/freezing point

Melting range 24 to 45 °C (297 to 318 K) (OECD 102, EU Method A.1 and ASTM E537-86)

 

Boiling point

Decomposition from approximately 312 °C (585 K) at 98.3 kPa before boiling (OECD 103, EU Method A.2 and ASTM E537-86)

 

Relative density

Lighter than water, relative density 0.910 at 21.0 ± 0.5 °C (OECD 109 and EU Method A.3)

 

Granulometry

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is marketed or used in a non-solid or granular form.

 

Vapour pressure

Vapour pressure wasfound to be 0.00043 Pa at 25 °C, which indicates irrelevantly low volatilization (EU Method A.4).

 

Partition coefficient

Log Kow > 9.4 (Kow > 2,510,000,000) at 30 °C (OECD 117 and EU Method A.8)

 

Water solubility

Water solubility of the water accommodated test item was clearly < 0.101 mg/L WAF at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C, which should be regarded as water insoluble or < 0.1 mg/L considering the analytical recovery of 95 % (OECD 105 and EU Method A.6).

 

Surface tension

The study does not need to be conducted because water solubility is below 1 mg/L at 20 °C

 

Flash point

Flash point 201.42 ± 2 °C (EU Method A.9)

 

Autoflammability / self-ignition temperature

Auto-ignition temperature 272 ± 5 °C (EU Method A.15)

 

Flammability

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid.

 

Explosive properties

The study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties.

 

Oxidising properties

The study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

Dissociation constant

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is insoluble

 

Viscosity

Static (kinematic) viscosity 212 and 5.4 mm²/s and dynamic (absolute) viscosity 19 and 4.9 mPa∙s at 40 and 100 °C, respectively (ASTM D445)
