Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties of registered substance were determined from experimental testing.

Some endpoints were waived, based on chemical structure of constituents or experience in handling and use of the substance.

The substance is a brown-red viscous liquid at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.

It is slightly denser than water.

The substance is not considered to have surface active potential.

The substance is classified as FLAMMABLE LIQUID cat 3 according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation).

It is NOT classified as hazardous with regard to physical hazards (flammability,explosivity, oxidising properties, self-heating) based on Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP regulation).

Additional information

Summary of relevant physico-chemical properties:

Endpoint (method)




Registered substance is a

brown-red viscous liquid

at 20 °C and 1 atm.

Melting point

(OECD 102/EU A1, DSC)

The Melting point is stated <-20°C (253.15K)

Boiling point

(OECD 103/EU A2,


The boiling point of the test item was determined with

197.9 ± 0.2 °C (corresponding to 471.0 ± 0.2 K).

Relative density

(OECD 109/EU A3, pycnometer method)

1.0264 ± 0.0001 g/cm3at 20 ± 0.2 °C

slightly denser than water

Granulometry (data waiving)

not applicable (liquid)

Vapour pressure

(OECD 104/EU A4,

static method)

The vapour pressure of the test item was 856 Pa at 20.0 °C and 1125 Pa at 25 °C

Log Kow 

(data waiving)

Waived based on technical issue and poor knownledge of the composition of the substance.

Water solubility 

(data waiving)

Waived considering the very complex nature of the test item, the information obtained from testing is considered as not relevant or of practical use for subsequent assessments.

Surface tension

(waiving, not intended to use)

The structures of the constituents of the substance are not characteristic of true surfactants and considering that it is not the intended use of the substance (i.e. not a desired property), this conclusion should be taken with caution.

Auto-ignition temperature


auto-ignition temperature was determined to be 250°C.


(A9, non equilibrium method)



Contact with air/water




Flash point = 46.5°C

Test item is classified as Flammable liquid Cat 3 according to CLP and GHS regulations.

Waived based on physical state

No hazardous reaction anticipated if contact with air or water. Waiving, based on structure and experience. 

Not applicable because it is a liquid.

Explosive properties


Waiving based on chemical structure of the constituents of the substance.

Registered substance is not to be classified as explosive material.

Oxidising properties


Waiving based on chemical structure of the constituents of the substance.

Registered substance is considered to have no oxidizing properties

Slight variations are possible with composition (UVCB substance).
