Description of key information

0.81 to 0.97 g/cm3 at 15°C 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Density determinations for a number of refined other lubricant base oils ranged from 0.81 to 0.97 g/cm3 at 15°C using EN ISO 21285/ASTM D4052 (CONCAWE, 2010a). An additional range of 0.857 to 0.950 g/cm3 was obtained following ASTM D4052 (CONCAWE, 1997). As a result, these substances are expected to float if released to water.

The studies below were conducted using International Organization for Standardization (ISO) method ISO 12185
