Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of ST 03 C 99 was determined to be 0.2 Pa at 25°C.
Low volatility (based on volatility bands criteria for occupational exposure (Chesar / ECETOC TRA), < 500 Pa).
Executive summary:

Method: The vapour pressure was determined using a vapour pressure balance system (effusion method) with measurements being made at several temperatures and linear regression analysis used to calculate the vapour pressure at 25°C. The method employed was based on EU Method A4.

Results: The vapour pressure of ST 03 C 99 was determined to be 0.2 Pa at 25°C.

Description of key information

Experimental vapour pressure, extrapolated (but negligible).
Low volatility.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Vapour pressure:
0.2 Pa
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

An experimental study on vapour pressure measurement of the test material, was conducted under GLP, and considered as fully reliable. Therefore the result is considered as key data.
