Additional information

The study available for this endpoint (Brekelmans M., 2011) was conducted according to the following guidelines and GLP principles:

-      OECD Test Guideline 114 (Viscosity of Liquids)

-      International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO3104: "Petroleum Products - Transparent and Opaque Liquids - Determination of Kinematic Viscosity and Calculation of Dynamic Viscosity", 1994.

-      ASTM International, ASTM D 445 -09: "Standard Test Method for Kinematic Viscosity of Transparent and Opaque Liquids (and Calculation of Dynamic Viscosity)", July 1, 2009.

The viscosity of DIMETHYL GLUTARATE was determined using a glass capillary viscometer. The kinematic viscosity of the test substance was 2.53 mm2/s at 20°C and 1.70 mm2/s at 40°C.
