Mean pour point : Less than -20°C (<253K).

Conclusions:
The Pour Point was found to be less than -20°C (<253K), using BS 2000: Part 15 (equivalent to ISO 3016), designed to be compatible with Method 102 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 27 July 1995. There is no hazard associated with the substance.
Executive summary:

No hazards are associated with this result. No classification is appropriate.
