Description of key information

Additional information

Data for the physical and chemical properties of nickel metal were provided from the European Union Nickel Metal Risk Assessment (2008 -2009). Additional studies were conducted for the following endpoints: particle size distribution (granulometry) and flammability. The results of these newly conducted studies are reported here as well as in the accompanying Chemical Safety Report (CSR). Data for several endpoints were waived due to intrinsic properties of nickel metal or based on official REACH guidelines as described in the justification text for waived data.

Nickel metal is a lustrous white solid or grey solid powder at room temperature. It is not classified for any physico-chemical properties.
