Reference
Endpoint:
density
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Scientifcally reasonable obtained company data
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The sample material is compressed in the measuring cylinder. Any gas contained in the sample escapes during this compression process. Under a preset pressure, the moving piston reaches a position which is specific for each individual sample, i.e. the sample is compressed to its specific volume. The stroke of the piston is measured by a displacement transducer and transmitted to the computer.
From the sample weight and volume, the computer automatically calculates the density.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
other: Elatest
Type:
density
Density:
1.274 g/cm³
Temp.:
20 °C
Conclusions:
Testing was conducted according to a scientifically valid and accepted method, Elatest is in general suitable to determine the density of a substance. Hence, the obtained results can be considered as reliable. The test item's density was determined to be 1.274 g/mL at 20°C.
Executive summary:

The density of the test item was determined with an Elatest to be 1.274 g/mL at 20°C.

Additional information

Testing was conducted according to a scientifically valid and accepted method, Elatest is in general suitable to determine the density of a substance. Hence, the obtained results can be considered as reliable. The test item's density was determined to be 1.274 g/mL at 20°C; with this result, the relative density (D420) has been calculated to be 1.274.
