Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
March 17 to 25, 2014
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Justification for type of information:
Data come from the description of the test substance in the GLP report on another physico-chemical property. No guideline is required according to REACh TGD. The substance is considered to be adequately characterised. Therefore full validation applies.
no guideline required
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Visual observation
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
inspected on 29 and 30 November 2010 / signed on 11 April 2011
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
thick liquid
Key result
liquid: viscous
"thick liquid" (as reported in the description of the susbstance) and "liquid and viscous" (as described in the preliminary test related to the determination of the melting point of the substance)
other: "Characteristic" according to the Safety Data Sheet of the supplier
Substance type:
The substance is a brown-orange thick liquid at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.
Executive summary:

Data come from the description of the test substance reported in the GLP study report on physico-chemical property of the substance. Observations recorded during the pre-test related to the determination of the melting point of the substance were also reported as additional information.

Description of key information

Brown-orange thick liquid to a highly viscous, very sticky resin at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:

Additional information

Data come from the description of the test substance in GLP reports on physico-chemical properties of the substance.

They are considered as key studies. The result is retained as key data.

Note that the melting range of the substance was determined to be between 12.9 and 15.1 °C (see endpoint 4.2, Laus, 2014), which is in accordance with the physical state considered at 20°C and 1013 hPa.

In addition, according to flowability test performed during the relative density determination (see endpoint 4.4, Laus,2014), it was observed that the test item was flowable at 65°C.
