Description of key information

Sepisol Fast Yellow MG-DPG has a melting point of 160°C and starts decomposing around 200°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
160 °C

Additional information

3 tests were performed to determined the melting of the test item:

- one hot bar test

- two DSC with open and close crucible

The 3 tests give equivalent results:
