melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
OECD Guideline 102 (Melting point / Melting Range)
GLP compliance:

Type of method:
differential scanning calorimetry
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
