Description of key information

The substance decomposes from approximately 96 degC

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
96 °C

Additional information

The melting/freezing characteristics of the substance were evaluated using a number of standard test method procedures. The substance softens on heating but presented a pour point in excess of 85 °C, remaining immobile at this temperature under standardized test conditions. By a modified liquid bath method, initial signs of melting were observed from approximately 61 °C; however this did not go to completion prior to either the loss of volatile components and/or decomposition from a temperature of approximately 96 °C.
