Description of key information

Approx. 25 % of petro pitch is volatile up to 500 °C (~ 770 K) at 101 kPa, however, associated with decomposition at >400 °C. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A definite boiling point does not exist. At a temperature of > 400 °C, petro pitch starts decomposing.
