Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Key result
Remarks on result:
other: No melting observed up to 400°C

No melting point was found between 20°C and the partly vaporization of the test item.

In order to monitor the thermal behavior of the test item, the temperature was raised up to 600°C. An endothermic peak at 460°C (onset) indicates the vaporization of secondary components. The registered loss of mass in combination with the changing of colour into black indicates a partly cracking of the test item. An exothermic decomposition was not observed.

No melting was observed up to 400°C.

Description of key information

No melting up to 400°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Bulk form:

The measurment was conducted by DSC according to OECD Guideline 102.

No melting was found below 400°C
